This page will cover what each box of hours represents on the Absence Request screen. 

  1. To access this page you will follow the path of: "My Employment" > "Start Pages" > "Absences"



    The landing page that you arrive will display the following:

Breakdown of Request Boxes:

  1. Absence Request: Clicking this will allow you to submit a request for an absence (ie. vacation/sick). See the available guides for more information on submitting a request:
    1. Submitting an absence request - one position
    2. Submitting an absence request - multiple positions 
  2. Drafts: This box indicates any draft requests that you have started and saved. Only you can see your drafts and they will still need to be submitted to be sent to your manager(s) for approval.
  3. In Progress: This indicates the requests that you have submitted for approval and are still outstanding. If you hover over the magnifying glass icon, you will see the list of pending requests. You can click on the request to re-open and edit the request. 
  4. Approved: This indicates the requests that have been approved. If you hover over the magnifying glass icon, you will see the list of approved requests. You can click an approved absence to view the request. If the request has not been transferred to payroll, you will be able to edit or delete the request. 

    If you choose to delete an already approved request, it will be sent for approval to your manager(s). Only upon approval will you be allowed to remove the approved dates.

    Breakdown of Balance Boxes:

  5. Sick Bank - (Employee Group): This indicates the available sick hours that you have.
  6. Vacation Bank - (Employee Group): This indicates your vacation hours available to you as of the most recent pay period. 

    The balances displayed here should match the balances on your payslip.  After payroll has been run for a pay period, the balances will change to reflect any time taken during that period.
