Leave: Paid Leave using Time Entry (Biweekly Payroll)

Biweekly employees, who are eligible for Illinois Paid Leave, can document/record their missed work hours and use their leave benefit.


In compliance with 820 ILCS 192/Paid Leave for All Workers Act, effective January 1, 2024, Parkland College will offer paid leave to eligible employees.

  • Illinois Paid leave may be used by the employee for any purpose as long as the paid leave is taken in accordance with the provisions of this act. 
  • Unused Illinois Paid leave hours will be forfeited and are not paid out upon separation. 
  • An employee may only use a maximum of 40 Illinois Paid Leave hours in one fiscal year.  
  • The accrual rate for this plan type is 1 hour earned for every 40 hours worked, a rate of 0.025 per 1 hour worked.

The below instructions focus on paid leave time entry.  For time entry specific directions, view Self Service Time Entry for Employees (Bi-Weekly Payroll).


  • Paid time can only be used for missed scheduled work hours.
  • Paid time can only be used for the active or future pay periods.  It cannot be retroactively applied.  

Requesting Time Off

  • For foreseeable/planned leave, an employee may be required to provide 7 calendar days’ notice.
  • If the need for leave is not foreseeable, an employee shall provide notice as soon as practicable.
  • The notice of leave can be made verbally or in writing/email.
