Requests for Extended Leave (e.g. FMLA)
As you are aware, with the implementation of OneUSG Connect, processes for submitting absence requests have changed. One particular process is for absences that will require time away from work on a continuous or intermittent basis that is applicable to medical circumstances. Historically, these requests were managed and monitored centrally in our internal HR unit. Now, UGA HR manages the tracking of this, and the steps to generate the request for such has also changed.
Please be sure to let your supervisor and our office know if you will need to request this type of absence and follow the steps for officially requesting extended leave, which is different from the regular absence leave request process. The following links provide you with further information and direction.
