2016-2017 A&P Faculty Leave Year End
The 2016-2017 A&P Faculty Leave Year will end on June 30, 2017. All outstanding A&P Faculty Leave requests for the period between July 1, 2016-June 30, 2017 must be entered into MyMadison and approved by a supervisor by July 5, 2017. Though the 2017-2018 A&P Faculty Leave balance is effective July 1, 2017 and is available for use on that date, A&P faculty will not be able to view the new leave balance or enter leave requests for the new year to MyMadison until Monday, July 10 due to year-end processing. Please hold on entering leave requests for the new year until after the 10th. Human Resources will be in communication with A&P faculty at the end of June with additional information.
University Holiday - July 3–4
The university will be closed Monday and Tuesday, July 3 and 4 in observance of the Independence Day holiday. Holidays are granted in an eight-hour increment. Full-time employee modified summer work schedules should be adjusted to account for 24 hours Wednesday-Friday, July 5-7. Any hours short of a 24-hour workweek should be charged to available leave. Contact Meghan Schaeffer, Leave Coordinator, email@example.com, 540/568-3974 with any questions.
Mid-Year Leave Liability Reporting
In order for the university’s leave records to be as accurate as possible for the Commonwealth Leave Liability Report, it is important that employees enter all outstanding leave requests for January 10 through June 30 into MyMadison prior to June 28 for supervisor approval. Supervisors must act on their requests by June 30. This will provide a snapshot of all leave balances as of the end of the fiscal year.
JobLink Upgrade is Coming Soon
Human Resources will be implementing a significant upgrade to the JobLink site in late June/early July. Many exciting new features will be available in the upgraded site, including new posting templates based on the position type (Faculty, Staff, Students and Graduate Assistants), new reference letter features, and the ability to use your back and forward browser buttons!
