Audit Instructions

  1. The position number is not usually changed while the employee is on a leave without pay. However, the agency, reporting unit and serial number may be changed, based upon campus need. The class code cannot be changed unless 1) prompted by reorganization changes where the class code is no longer appropriate, or 2) the employee was officially notified of actions in progress (e.g. promotion, demotion) prior to the effective date of the LWOP. If a change is needed, process a Transaction A58 to return the employee from leave, then process a Transaction 120 to change the position number, followed by an S44 Transaction (BOB) with the same effective date as the 120 Transaction.

  2. The effective date is the close of business on the calendar day (or part of day) preceding the effective date of the leave.

  3. The employee must be reinstated before being placed on any other type of leave.

  4. If an employee separates (e.g., resigned/deceased) while on LWOP, process the appropriate separation.  A reinstatement is not required unless the separation is a S70/S71, then the employee must be reinstated before the separation.  However, if the employee is entitled to lump sum vacation or extra hours and was on a leave without pay before the effective date of a General Salary Increase (Transaction GEN) the employee must be reinstated.  Process a Transaction A58 (COB) effective the same date as the separation date and in Item 215 enter ’L/S INCREASE ONLY’, followed by the appropriate separation transaction.
