Web Leave Reporting FAQs
WLR is the online system available through the myWSU portal that allows employees to report leave taken in a pay period.
All Benefits-Eligible Exempt/Salary Faculty and Staff are expected to report leave electronically at the end of each pay period. As an exempt employee, reporting leave is the method required to accurately account for leave taken as a WSU employee. Failure to report leave can result in benefit issues or even denial of short-term or long-term disability insurance by the insurance carrier.

You are expected to submit a Leave report each pay period. If you did not take leave during that time period, you will submit an Empty (zero hour) leave report. To do this, simply open your leave report and click “Preview/Submit”.
Four days prior to leave sign off for each pay period, you will receive a friendly email reminder that leave is due.
If an employee is unavailable to submit leave taken, they should inform their supervisor who will advise timekeeping of the circumstances.
If you have submitted your leave report for approval and it has not been approved, you can make changes to your WLR by selecting ‘Recall Leave Report’.
If your leave report has been approved and a correction needs to be made your supervisor will need to email email@example.com for corrections to be made by payroll.
If you use more leave than you have available, the WLR system will respond “possible insufficient leave balance”. WLR will accept your entry even if you do not have leave available to take.
Exceeding your available leave balance may result in a pay adjustment. You will be contacted by the payroll office.
