New tool for absences and recording days working from home

Since October, all TU Graz employees have had access to SAP Fiori as a central tool for recording, requesting and approving/confirming absences, including sick and health notification and reporting days working from home. All absences and also days working from home as well as business trips and leaves of absence come together in an availability calendar.

on how to use SAP Fiori:

What do I have to do when I take sick leave?

Inform your supervisor or the assistant about your illness by telephone, in writing or via SAP Fiori at the latest before the start of work. All illnesses, even those lasting less than four days, must be recorded in SAP Fiori within one week of the first day of illness. Sick leave notifications over three working days require an uploaded sick leave confirmation. If a confirmation of sick leave is already available for illnesses of less than three days, this must also be uploaded for reasons of continued payment. Ensure that when you report sick in SAP Fiori, you upload a complete sick leave confirmation for the entire duration of the sick leave.

What do I have to do when I take carer’s leave (family emergency leave)?

Carer’s leave is not simply additional days off, but rather inability to work for important reasons. It must be reported immediately and requires demonstrable, legally regulated reasons. Please make sure you register your children with the Personnel Department in order to be able to take carer’s leave for the care and/or supervision of your children.

Important instructions for reporting days working from home:

A valid agreement signed by the supervisor is required for reporting days working from home in SAP Fiori and claiming them for tax purposes. This applies to all TU Graz employees, including those who are exempt from being location dependent. The report must be submitted by 10th January of the following year at the latest in order to be included in the annual pay slip.
