Partial Day Absence


Overtime exempt professional staff are generally not required to use paid leave for part day absences, provided such absences are not unusually frequent or lengthy.

All absences and use of leave are subject to the supervisor's approval.


If an overtime exempt professional staff employee or librarian requests a partial day absence, follow your department’s normal leave request procedures to provide your employee with approval in advance of the effective date(s).

If you approve the partial day absence, the absence does not need to be recorded in the employee’s Work/Leave record.
