LSU Leave Certification Requirement


La R.S. Title 17:3311 (A)(3) requires that any Academic, Research Associate and Professional employees who earn leave must certify their leave on a monthly basis.  

Beginning with January 2024, the leave certification process will move to a task in your Workday inbox. A notification will be sent in February to certify your leave for the period ending January 2024 in Workday. Please follow the link in the notification to complete the task. View the Leave Certification Job Aid to learn more. 

For all periods through 12/31/2023, please use the following instructions: 

In order to certify your attendance, you can log in to myLSU, expand the Employee Resources section of the myLSU menu, and click on Workday Leave Certification. Please complete all pending leave certifications in this application by March 2024. You will continue to receive notifications from this system until you have completed all pending leave certifications. This system will be decommissioned in 2024. Anyone with pending leave certifications will be in non-compliance with the requirements of the statute. If all leave has been certified, the Workday Leave Certification will state “There are no pending items’. 

Please Note: Leave Certification and Effort Certification are two separate requirements. Effort Certification reflects actual effort expended in the various categories (salary charges to a sponsored project) during the report period. Leave Certification requires personnel to certify that they were either present or absent from their usual duty posts during the usual working day.
