Leave Requests Over Labor Day

If you plan on using vacation hours around Labor Day, please pay special attention to requests that fall over that weekend. Normally ESS Leave will disregard the weekend and not charge vacation hours for Saturday and Sunday, but this is not the case when it comes to holidays.

Example: If you plan on taking vacation Friday, August 30, through Tuesday, September 3, you will need to submit a leave request for Friday and another request for Tuesday. Creating the two requests will then accurately post your vacation to your employee record.

Please contact us at helpdesk@nebraska.edu or call 402.472.7373 or 877.472.7694 with any questions.
