Classified employees may attend the annual Legislative Day and be paid for the day without using accumulated leave.  Please note, travel time to and from the session is not included in work time.

You must submit an email or written request to your supervisor and receive approval to attend the session.  Supervisors can deny requests based on the needs of the university.

If you do have approval to attend the session, how you record your time for the day is determined by your policy profile.
