In Workday, a security role determines what you can see and what you can do. It provides individuals access to business processes and data within the assigned supervisory organizational structure.

State service credit is earned when you work for a State of Louisiana agency. State service impacts your annual and sick leave accrual rate. If you have previous state service or transferred to LSU from another state agency, your annual and sick leave accruals may be eligible for transfer. Generally, annual leave will transfer if it was not paid out at your former agency/institution. Sick will transfer if your hire date at LSU is within 5 years of your separation date from your former agency.
