Employee Self-Service > Leave Requests > Upload Supporting Documents to Leave Requests

As an employee, you can attach supporting documents to your self-service requests for leave. For example, you can attach a doctor’s certificate to sick leave requests or a birth certificate to paternity leave requests. Leave approvers are able to access these documents uploaded when viewing your leave requests.

  2. Follow the steps to complete a leave request .
  3. On the yellow Request Details panel, under Supporting Documents (if applicable), click Upload new files > Choose File to browse and attach supporting documents from your computer.
