Why am I getting exceptions (errors) when submitting my time off requests?

If there are exceptions on your time off request, you must fix any errors before submitting.

Exceptions Prevent Request Submissions

If you do not select a pay code on the first page of the time off request, EmpCenter will allow you to continue but will not allow you to submit the request until you select a pay code.  You will receive an "exceptions prevent request submissions" notice:

To clear the exception, select a pay code from the drop down list and click Update:
