Be sure to enter your holiday time and leave early

Published: December 7, 2016 7:30 am

UF Leave Administration encourages you to enter your time and leave early as you make preparations for time off during the holidays.  All TEAMS and Academic Personnel identified by their departments as “essential employees” may enter December personal leave beginning on Monday, Dec. 12. Additionally, on Monday, Dec. 12, USPS employees may enter advanced vacation leave that will be used between Dec. 27–30.

On Dec. 13, personal leave days will automatically be applied to eligible TEAMS and Academic Personnel employees’ records in the elapsed timesheet for Dec. 27, 28, 29 and 30. The system will not require approval for the personal leave days (DPL-270 time-reporting code) for exempt employees whose hours were automatically loaded.  However, non-exempt TEAMS are required to enter their personal leave days (DPL-270 time reporting code) into the system for Dec. 27, 28, 29 and 30.

For further details on this year’s holiday closing period, please see the UF Administrative Memo.   An instruction guide for the holiday closing period may also be found on the myUFL Toolkits.
