Certify your leave in the portal by Aug. 27

Each year, per Board of Regents Policy 11-E, the University of Colorado asks employees to verify the accuracy of their sick and vacation leave in the employee portal.

It’s likely your department’s payroll liaison has asked you to do this. If not, we will walk you through the steps to certify leave. To get started, download this step-by-step guide. The first page guides you through directions to certify your leave in the portal.

Troubleshooting tips

If you believe your leave tallies look off, we have some tips to help you troubleshoot. If you are checking your Leave Certification balance against figures in My Leave, you should:

  1. Set your My Leave calendar to July 2018.
  2. Look at figures in the Usable Balance column. (The Usable Balance numbers shown in July 2018 represent leave balances ending June 30, 2018.)
  3. Compare My Leave’s Usable Balance figures with the Annual Leave Certification’s Ending Balance column. If these figures match, you can certify your leave. In the example below, you’ll see that the figures in Annual Leave Certification match those in My Leave.

Please note: If you review leave certification balances after Aug. 1, your August leave accruals will be incorporated, which is reflected in the column marked Previous Earning. In order to validate that it matches, deduct the Previous Earning amount from the Usable Balance.

If your balances do not match or you have questions before certifying your leave, please contact your department’s payroll liaison for assistance.

Thank you for ensuring balances are up-to-date and accurate!
