Employees Should Report Leave Time Used Promptly

Employees request leave time, such as vacation, personal holidays, and sick leave, using the Time and Absence module in MyUW. In conjunction with the move to a biweekly pay schedule for all UW System employees—including UW–Madison employees—Faculty, Academic Staff, and Limited Appointees are now expected to enter their leave as soon as possible after the leave time is used. These employees should not wait until the end of the calendar month to enter leave taken for that month. If no leave is taken in a given calendar month, Faculty, Academic Staff, and Limited Appointees should use the No Leave Taken function in MyUW to submit a report as soon as possible after the calendar month has ended. University Staff should continue to use timesheets, as they have been, for leave reporting.

Feedback Requested on Food Waste Collection on Campus

In recent years, UW–Madison maintained a successful campus food waste collection program. On July 30, 2021, UW–Madison was forced to suspend collection of food waste (commonly referred to as “compost”) generated on campus. The Office of Sustainability is seeking input from campus users to help inform next steps for a short and long term solution to managing food waste. All members of the campus community are invited to complete a brief survey about this issue.
