HR - Faculty Sabbatical

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

Faculty Sabbatical can be either a full academic year or for one semester. Depending on the duration, it will be a fully paid sabbatical (one semester) or a partially paid sabbatical (65% pay for the full academic year). Changes are made to Position and Job Data. No absence entry is required.

PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS:
  • Full Academic Year Sabbatical
A faculty member may be approved to take a sabbatical for the academic year and receive from the institution financial support at any level up to sixty-five percent of his/her full compensation for that period, in accordance with institutional policies.
In this case, a row is added to update the position and the action reason used is “Change FTE for Faculty Sabbatical”. The FTE is changed to 65% of the full FTE amount. The change to the position flows through to Job Data to reflect the change. The compensation is then calculated using the reduced FTE.  If a Faculty member is on a Full Academic Year Sabbatical and secures a buy out from an outside source for the 35% reduction, we should record the sabbatical on the Job Data pages.  If the buy out is between 1% to <35%, then entry is needed in Position info.

The profile management page is also used to record the sabbatical.

After the FTE is reduced you will create an Additional Pay (Add'l Pay) for both hours and pay (Code USB):  This will not add additional Gross Pay but will add to WRS, WRH, and VLR accumulators for the extent of the Sabbatical period.  This will make the employee whole for WRS and Absence accruals.  Fringe costs on the Add'l Pay Earnings code will be charged to the appropriate funding sources and BAC will be deducted from earnings if appropriate.
  • One Semester Sabbatical
A faculty member may be approved to take a sabbatical for one semester of the academic year and receive from the institution financial support at any level up to a maximum of his/her full compensation for that period.
For a one-semester sabbatical leave, a Job Data row will be added. Action reason “Paid Leave of Absence” for “Faculty Sabbatical”.  The profile management page is also used to track the semester leave. You will not need to enter this in position management.

Funding may be updated to reflect any changes as a result of the sabbatical.
