How do I cancel a time off request?

Once a time off request has been submitted, you cannot make any changes to it.  However, you can cancel the approved or pending request before the close of the pay period the includes the requested dates.  If the request was already approved, cancelling will alert your supervisor and put the time back in your leave bank.

  1. After selecting My Time Off from the Employee Dashboard, click on the Time Off Request you would like to cancel from the Request List:select time off request from my time off page request listNote: if the date of the requested time off is in the past (but still in the current pay period), you will need to click on the Past Tab to view the request and complete the steps below:                                                           past tab on the my time off page request list options
  2. On the Request Summary page, select Cancel Request:cancel request button on request summary page
  3. Add any comments, if needed, then click Cancel Request:
    enter comments then click on cancel request button
  4. You’ll receive confirmation that the request was cancelled.  Click OK to return to the Request List page:request successfully cancelled status box click ok to continue
  5. On the Request List page, the request will be listed with a status of Cancelled:my time off page request list showing time off request status is cancelled

Note: once the request is cancelled, no further action can be taken.  To re-request the day you must create a new time off request.  In addition, if you added the dates/time to your calendar using the attachment in the approval email from EmpCenter, cancelling a time off request does not remove the appointment from your calendar.  You will need to manually remove the appointment from your calendar.
