Q: How many days leave in advance can an employee take?
Staff Services Online allows an employee to request up to 2 days in advance for Annual Leave.
Should a Manager wish to request that an employee be able to utilise more than this amount they will need to write a justification for the request of leave in advance outlining the "business requirements". The business case must take into consideration:
- Fixed term employees - Sufficient leave will have accrued by the end of the fixed term period to cover the annual leave taken in advance.
- The deduction of annual leave to cover the Christmas Closedown period (usually 2-3 days).
- If the employee leaves the University the area will be liable for the overpayment due to leave taken in advance.
This request is to be submitted to HR for action.
