To do by Aug. 27: Certify your leave in the portal
It’s likely your department’s payroll liaison has asked you to do this. If not, we want to walk you through the steps to certify leave. To get started, download this step-by-step guide. The first page will walk you through directions to certify your leave in the portal.
If you think 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:
- Set your My Leave calendar to July 2017.
- Look at figures in the Usable Balance column. (The Usable Balance numbers shown in July 2017 represent leave balances ending June 30, 2017.)
- 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, simply deduct the Previous Earning amount from the Usable Balance.
If your balances do not match or have questions before certifying your leave, please contact the payroll liaison in your department for assistance.
Thank you for ensuring balances are up-to-date and accurate!
