For all non-annual leave requests that require the approval of Local HR, employees will submit the request using employee self-service and the employee’s manager will provide a recommendation regarding the employee’s request.
NSSO will then email Local HR about the request awaiting its approval. Local HR can approve or deny the request even if the employee’s manager has recommended otherwise.
The NSSO will adhere to the minimum lead in times for each non-annual leave type as set out by the relevant circulars (see the supporting information below). Employees may also be denied non-annual leave if they fail to meet the specific eligibility criteria for the specific leave type as set out by the relevant circulars.
Once NSSO receives the instruction from Local HR, it will put in place the next steps. For example, if the leave has been approved, NSSO will instruct payroll to amend the employee’s annual leave if applicable.
