Time-off Request: Fill out the form to request vacation, personal day, research, and RSCA day

You do not need to report absences or request time-off for leaving early, arriving late, or taking off for an hour or two during the day. Just make sure your supervisor is aware and signed off on your expected time out.

All librarians need to enter Absences once a month. Monthly deadlines for entering absences on SJSU @ Work can be found on the library's master calendar.

Part Time Employees: When entering your absences, be aware that regardless of your actual schedule, the system assumes you are working 5 days a week.

  • Example: So if you are working 32 hours a week at 8hr/4 days a week, the system has you down as 6.4 hours/5 days a week. To report an absence for one 8-hour day, you would put it in the system as 6.4 hours on the day you missed, and an additional 1.6 hours the following day. If you have questions about this, reach out to Evelia Sanchez for clarification.

To enter absences, go to one. --> search SJSU @ Work --> Self-Service --> Time  Reporting --> Report Time --> Report and View Absences
