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. The Annual Leave Certification process is currently underway, and as of July 25, the Annual Leave Certification balances will include vacation and sick leave taken in June. 

In My Leave, the July beginning balance should agree with the leave certification balances.

To get started certifying leave, download this step-by-step guide. The first page guides you through directions to certify your leave in the portal.

Checking your leave

To check your Leave Certification balance against figures in My Leave, you should:

  1. Set your My Leave calendar to July 2018.
  2. Review figures in the Usable Balance column.  
  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.

If your balances do not match or you have questions before certifying your leave, please contact your department’s payroll liaison for assistance. For more information on My Leave balances, review the My Leave: Reading Balances guide

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

I actually have had my UCD staff stop using MyLeave as of 7/1/18.  At least half of the time it does not deduct the leave from previous months.  I have had to go back to May 2017 and calculate and manually enter balances that have not deducted up through May 2018.  It has taken hours of my time over the last year to try to keep up on this and manually enter balances and then recheck.  This happens on almost all of my UCD employees and it has happened for the time I also have entered into the MyLeave system.  I have heard at our managers meeting that this is a regular occurrence for all of the managers in the Department of Ob-Gyn.  I would wish that if we have an electronic system that is supposed to make life easier for those of us who manage other staff that this would not occur.  Thank you.
