The Governor's Office of Employee Relations (GOER) offically closed state offices, including UB, on March 14, 2017 due to inclement weather. Learn how to charge your leave accruals.
Since UB's closure on March 14 was ordered by the governor, nonessential employees are not required to charge leave accruals. However, essential employees who did not report to work on March 14 are required to charge their accruals.
If you are not sure if you are an essential or a nonessential employee, ask your supervisor.
Nonessential state employees who did not work any portion of 3/14/2017 due to the campus closure will need to enter a non-chargeable absence. Please note: Classified employees must use the “Request Time Off” page in the system.
Employees that requested March 14 off due to the weather conditions only can record March 14 as a non-chargeable absence. If you had already submitted a time-off request for March 14 due to the weather conditions using accruals, you will need to withdraw it. Once the request has been withdrawn, you will need to resubmit as a non-chargeable absence.
Withdrawing a Time Off Request:
HR is waiting on additional information about state hourly employees from GOER, which should be received prior to the end of this payroll period on 3/22/17. As soon as this information is received, HR will share it with all employees.
Non-Exempt Salaried Employees: If you did not work any portion of 3/14/2017 due to the campus closure, please indicate the number of hours that you are normally scheduled for using the hours type “Non Worked Time”, then select the absence reason “Site Closure-Approved by HR” on your timesheet.
Hourly Paid Employees: Please contact Denise Katus at 645-4453 prior to the completion of your timesheet if you were scheduled to work on 3/14/2017.
Exempt Employees: If you did not work any portion of 3/14/2017 due to the campus closure, please indicate “UB closure on 3/14” in the comments field of your timesheet.
