Overriding Absence Take Rounding for Faculty/Academic Staff/Limited in HRS


This procedure will instruct the user on how to enter absence takes that will override the system rules that round takes to quarter hour or to the 4 or 8 hour takes for Faculty/Academic Staff/Limited Appointment (FA/AS/LI) Full Time employees.

Process Considerations:

  • Takes that are entered in other increments than 4 or 8 will round according to policy.  The user should not input values other than 4 or 8 hour for full time staff.
  • Exceptions: 
    • Using up a residual balance may not be in a 4 or 8 hour increment.  Therefore you would need the override in these situations.  In no circumstance should anything other than a .25 hour increment be used.
