Technical (step-by-step) guide: See the NEATS Timekeeping procedure (01.30.10) and NEATS tutorials.
When determining whether to APPROVE or REJECT a leave request or a leave entry on a timesheet, consider the following factors:
Is the reason stated for the leave an authorized use of that type of leave (in statute, regulation or policy)?
Do the notes (yellow sticky note image link on the timesheet) agree with the hours requested and information entered in the Additional Description: field?
Will you be violating any regulations or policies by approving or rejecting the leave?
See your agency's policies, procedures or regulations for any agency specific processes (e.g., required hard copy form). See the NEATS Handbook for applicable payroll code(s).
