Leave of Absence or Time Off?

For most absences in Workday, you will make a request for Time Off (e.g., Sick, Vacation, Personal Holiday, Comp Time).

Information on types of Time Off

Some absences, including those that may qualify for the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Disability Leave, or Parental Leave require both a Leave of Absence (LOA) request and accompanying request for Time Off.

For example, an employee who needs 4 weeks to recover from back surgery would make a Leave of Absence request to be out of the workplace for 4 weeks, and also make the accompanying requests for Time Off to indicate what accrued Time Off or Unpaid Time Off they would like to use during their Leave of Absence. (e.g., 3 weeks Sick Time Off, 4 days of Comp Time, and their Personal Holiday.)
