Texas State University staff, faculty, and undergraduate and graduate student workers have two additional options for leave as announced on March 31, 2020— Emergency Paid Sick Leave and Expanded Family and Medical Leave.  The university is providing these options to Texas State employees as part of the newly enacted Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).  Employees who wish to request either FFCRA leave category will now find two new leave forms in SAP.  For your convenience, please refer to these user guides for both requesting leave and  timekeeping:


  • To request leave, please review the following user guides to help you either:
    • Request Emergency Paid Sick Leave, or
    • Request Expanded Family & Medical Leave.
  • Once completed, the form will automatically route to your supervisor, who may:  
    • Approve FFCRA COVID-19 Leave Requests.
  • To help you enter the appropriate time code to account for absences due to COVID-19, use the following COVID-19 Leave Reporting for FFCRA SAP Timekeeping Guidance once you receive email notification that your request is approved by Human Resources.
