The College of Liberal Arts has instituted a new
procedure for the allocation of faculty research course releases for
FY11 and beyond. Academic units that wish to propose course releases
to support the
scholarly research or other creative work of tenure-track and tenured
faculty must submit requests to the Office of the Associate Dean for
Faculty no later than Friday, 29 January 2010.
Information about the request process, review criteria, and terms and
conditions for research course releases is available on the Faculty web
important to keep vacation and sick leave balances current, and for supervisors
to check those balances before approving time away with pay.As a reminder, negative leave balances are not
permissible, and it is also not allowable to hold off on entering time away in
the payroll system until an employee has earned enough of a balance. A supervisor can learn the vacation and sick
leave balance of an employee by going to http://www.umreports.umn.edu/, and
searching in the HR reports for basic personnel information.If adequate balances are available for use,
the supervisor can approve the leave request, and follow up with submission of the
signed absence cards within the next payperiod.
at time of request an employee does not have an adequate leave balance to
account for all the requested time away, the supervisor can chose to approve
that portion of time as leave without pay.When entering the vacation and sick leave forms into the system, the
service teams will monitor employee balances, and notify the unit and CLA HR if
a discrepancy is found.This will allow
all of us to quickly work together towards a resolution.
communicate this information to employees and supervisors of your unit.Any questions can be directed to your CLA HR
representative or emailed to email@example.com.
