- The process around the managing of vacation usage is at
the discretion of the department, including local requirements such as
- Vacation leave usage is to be
reported by the employee when possible in advance of when vacation
leave is taken or immediately following use. UM 1704 Faculty/P&A
Vacation Leave Reporting form is to be used. Reporting is done in work
weeks, days and half days (e.g., 2 weeks; 1 week and 2.5 days; .5
days). Dates of absence are also reported on the form. Below are the
URL's to the form.
amount of vacation leave used and reported will be entered into PS by
the authorized HRMS users on your Financial Service Team on a biweekly
basis. This is particularly important if the employee is at their
vacation maximum (22 days/176 hours). Please send the forms directly
to your Service Team using the same process that you currently use for
submitting Absence Cards for AFSCME/CS employees.
- Days entered into PS are automatically converted into hours to align with PS functionality.
- PS reflects accumulation in hours, not days. The conversion equivalents are:
- Full-time: 100% appointment 1 day = 8 hours; .5 days = 4 hours
- Part-time: Example of a vacation eligible appointment at less than 100% time:
- 75% appointment 1 day = 6 hours; .5 days = 3 hours
usage is reported to faculty and P& A employee in hours on their
pay statement or vacation leave report accessed via the Employee
Self-Service website at http://hrss.umn.edu/.
administrators/supervisors may view vacation accrual and balances for
their faculty and P&A employees through UM Reports at: www.umreports.umn.edu
