Leave approving officials are those officials who are authorized to administer leave for employees under their supervision. Leave approving officials are responsible for carrying out re-delegated leave authority.
Time and attendance clerks are responsible for following DOT and FHWA established guidelines for documenting time and attendance, as outlined in the Integrated Payroll Processing System (IPPS) Time and Attendance Manual and Consolidated Automated System for Time and Labor Entry (CASTLE) Time and Attendance Manual.
Employees are responsible for submitting requests for the use of leave to the leave approving official in advance (if possible), furnishing the required supporting documents, and calling to the attention of the leave approving official any discrepancies in leave balances related to their duty or leave status. Whenever an unanticipated emergency prevents an employee from reporting for work as scheduled, the employee should call his or her supervisor within the first hour of the workday.
