Scheduling Study Leave
- Discuss your Study Leave plans in advance with your manager. While business requirements must be taken into consideration, your manager will work with you to ensure that work load does not restrict you from taking Study Leave.
- Once agreed with your manager, enter your Study Leave time off in Workday [VMware network access required] under time off type Study/Exams Time Off (Hours). Please note that the tool will show your leave in hours, where one (1) day will equal eight (8) hours for full-time employees.
