Making a Setup Correction


Once an employee’s record is created with setup values, the only way to modify these original balances in the Online Work/Leave System (OWLS) is to make a setup correction. Setup corrections can be made to the following types of leave:

Making a setup correction will always return you to the first month of the current, active OWLS record.  If the correction is retroactive, you will be required to resubmit each month in order for the leave balances to be re-calculated.


To make a setup correction, open the employee’s OWLS record, and take the following steps:

1. Click on the 'Balance Change' tab at the top of the screen. 2. Choose 'Setup Correction.'

3. Select the appropriate leave  type, such as 'Sick Leave.'

4. Enter the correct number of hours. 5. Add a note that explains why the correction is being made. 6. Click on 'Save.'

7. Review the summary of changes.

8. If you need to make another balance adjustment, click on "Make Another Adjustment," and start over at step #2 above.

If no more adjustments are being made, click on either the “Next Step – Update First Affected Month” button or the "Calendar" tab to return to the first month affected by the change.

9. Click on the "Submit Month and Send PERMs" button to re-submit each month with the corrected leave balances.
