Absence Management

The conversion to the Absence Management module in CMS HR will be taking place over Summer 2011. Absence Management is a powerful module within the CMS application that gives the campus control over tracking and processes employee absences. It provides employee and manager self service features allowing Fullerton to streamline its existing business processes.
