UW employee absence management and earnings statement changes

Starting Dec. 15, 2018, employees paid monthly now have the convenience of viewing and managing all absences in one convenient location. The new Absence management page will allow employees to:

  • Request absences
  • View leave reports
  • Review absence balances
  • View and edit absence requests
  • Cancel absence requests

Absence Balance View Enhancement Available 12/15/18

Also beginning December 15, 2018, monthly employees will experience an enhanced absence balance view.  Employees will be able to view both current pay period and projected absence balances. The projected absence balances view is a new feature.

Absence balances will also be updated more frequently (once entered, approved and updated via overnight processing) giving employees more current absence balance information.

To experience the new absence management and absence view enhancements, log into the MyUW portal for UW-Madison or for all other UW System institutions and launch the Time and Absence tile. See Time and Absence Help for tip sheets and instructions.

Earnings Statement Changes in January, 2019

Beginning in January 2019, leave-eligible employees will no longer see the Leave Balances section located at the bottom of the current earnings statement. This change will be effective on the January 2, 2019 paycheck for employees paid monthly, and on the January 3, 2019 paycheck for employees paid biweekly.

If you experience an issue viewing your earnings statement, it is likely due to a pop-up blocker in your browser. See help with pop-up blockers. For an explanation of the fields on your earnings statement, see Earnings Statement Help.
