December 07, 2022

2023 Absence Updates in Workday, Including Legislative Leave

November 30, 2022

As we head into the winter break, I want to share a preview of some of the planned changes to absence and time off in Workday for 2023, which the ISC and Central HR have been working on together.

In particular, legislative sick leave, which was added in January 2022, will be set up differently in Workday to create a streamlined approach to paid sick time off while ensuring we remain compliant with all UBC collective agreements, handbooks and policies. While there are no changes to eligibility, we are making some system updates based on direction from our partners in Central HR.
