Understanding Time and Attendance Rules

This online class reviews UB’s time and attendance rules for state faculty and staff to help you understand how to properly manage your days off from work.

Running Time: 20-40 minutes

The University at Buffalo offers many benefits, one of them being time off from work. This time off can take many forms, such as vacation leave, sick leave, holidays and, if applicable, personal time. Each of these types of time off is earned as you work here and each type can only be used for specific absences. It is important that you understand how your time off is earned and the correct ways that it can be used. This class provides the detailed information both employees and supervisors need to effectively manage his or her days off from work.
