The Application for Leave of Absence is now an electronic form that you can view here. When you click on this link, it will take you to an online form. The form will ask you for your Employee Id, Name, and Supervisor, Department Head or Program Director in order to correctly route your request for approval. In addition, you will fill out information regarding the leave that you are requesting, transportation information, insurance coverage and estimated expenses.
NOTE: This is not the Faculty Personal Business Form. If you need to request Personal Business time, please request a form from your Department ESP
Under Tutorials on the right hand side of this page, you will find a link to a video tutorial that walks you through the new process, step-by-step. The video is called “Requestor Tutorial”. There is also a detailed document that includes screen shots to help walk you through the new process, which is named “Requestor Documentation” located under Documentation. In addition, there is documentation on how to access your LOA in ImageNow/WebNow.
Faculty and Adjuncts, once you select your employee group you will be given a box to select your Department Head or Program Director. Once the form is submitted to that person, they will then forward your request on to the Associate Dean that provides approval for the leave. If you have questions about who you should be submitting your document to, please contact your department Support Professional or Human Resources for assistance.
Supervisors/Department Heads/Program Directors
Under Tutorials on the right hand side of this page, you will find a link to a video tutorial that walks you through the new process of approving, step-by-step. The video is called “Approver Tutorial”. You will receive an email once a day from ImageNow if you have any documents that are awaiting approval. Within that email there will be a link that will take you to WebNow to review the request. To log into WebNow you will use your GRCC Network user id and password (user id and password you use to log into your computer). In addition to the video tutorial, there is also a document that includes screen shots to walk you through this new process. The document, "Approval Documentation", is located under Documentation. If you have access to retreive LOAs, the "Requestor Tutorial/Documentation" will walk you through on how to retreive LOAs in ImageNow/WebNow.
