Cancel an Absence Request

To perform this HR-related task, you must first Navigate to the HCM Self Service Homepages.

Note: You will only be able to cancel an absence request if it has not yet been approved. If you wish to cancel an absence request that has already been approved, you need to contact your manager to Deny the absence request.

If you plan to submit a request for absence for the same day of the one you have canceled, please follow the steps in the Re-Submit an Absence Request for the Same Day article.
1. On your Employee Self Service homepage, select the Time tile.
