What is the process to request vacation and other absences within the HRMS?

Note: This article is applicable to Full-time Support staff only. 

Employees are expected to request vacation and report absences through the HRMS, following existing departmental absence policies and practices communicated by their manager, based on conditions outlined in the Academic Staff collective agreement. Some managers wish employees to speak to them first before submitting through the HRMS; other managers may be fine with submitting solely through the HRMS. After following the departmental process,  the employee must then formally request this absence through the HRMS for proper tracking. Managers will receive an email notification as well as a notification through the HRMS bell icon for pending approvals. Once the approvals have been granted, the employee will receive the approval status of their request through the bell notification within the HRMS. 

Absences can be entered ahead of time (e.g. scheduling a vacation or a surgery), or they can be entered after the fact (e.g. entering a sick day after returning from the leave).
