My schedule in Workday is wrong, how can I fix this? 


All full time staff will automatically be assigned a schedule of Monday-Friday, 8:00am-4:30pm, when Workday goes live on July 1. If this schedule does not match your current schedule, a new Workday schedule will need to be entered. This can be done either by an employee requesting a schedule in Workday followed by their supervisor approving the schedule, or by a supervisor assigning a custom schedule for an employee. Current schedules can be approved or assigned by the supervisor, however, anything different from the current schedule must be discussed with HR first, as there may be contractual impacts to this, including mandated notice times.

Employee Instructions for Requesting a Schedule:

  1. In the Workday search tool, type "Request Work Schedule”.
