Absence Management

Absence Management is a module within the PeopleSoft application that will allow employees to see their current balances for vacation, sick and personal days at the end of each pay period. Monthly-paid employees will view balances and enter their time off through HR Self Service. Biweekly-paid employees will continue to enter their time off in the Time Collection System but will access employee self service to view their balances. The information stored in the system will be the authoritative source for balances and allow the University to have an accurate estimate of liability for these paid time off categories.
