Every year, Human Resources presents the Board of Governors with a report on key health indicators at the university. The report provides a snapshot of the health of our faculty and staff, which includes statistics on the average number of paid sick leave days taken by staff.
In preparation for this year’s report, we request that you ensure your department’s administrator enters sick leave statistics for the 2020 calendar year by Friday, January 29, 2021.
With the transition to Workday, sick leave statistics will need to be submitted for two periods: January 1 to November 1, and November 2 to December 31, 2020.
Full instructions can be found at here.
