(found under "Section VIII - Vacation, Sick and Comp Information")
-this report now includes information for academics on vacation hours
used, balance and liability.
- NOTE: Sick, Comp, and Service Hour information will showup as "N/A" on academics.
the top of the page for "Employee Vacation/Sick Usage Summary," there
is a link to a summary of the vacation activity by pay period for
academics, going back to the pay period 4-12-09.
- Under Payroll Reports: Vacation, Sick and Comp Balances
- Reports can be pulled by the individual or College/Administrative Unit and then further refined underneath.
doing a College/Admin Unit sort the report always sorts academic
employees in the upper section. When using the resort button on the
column headings academics will always stay sorted at the top, academics
and staff will never intermingle.

- This new report indicates those academics whose vacation balance is 176 hours (the very maximum).
