New online leave request system being rolled out

OLLU is rolling out an online Leave Request and Leave Approval system over the next month. It can be accessed in Employee Self-Service.

All salaried employees should begin using the new system now. Hourly employees will begin using the new system, according to the schedule below. Instructions for using the system are available online.

Please note: Employees submitting leave forms using the new system should communicate with their supervisor to ensure that their leave request has been received. Likewise, supervisors approving or denying leave requests should communicate with employees to ensure the employee receives a notification of the action. This extra layer of communication will be necessary for about a month after each group’s rollout of the system.

As each group of employees moves to the new system, paper forms will no longer be accepted for employees in that group.
