Absences & Leaves

Leave Reporting via Aesop
All employees are required to notify their supervisor if they are absent from work and to record their absences via our automated leave reporting system, Aesop. Absences can be reported online at or by phone to 1 (800) 942-3767.

Whether you’re reporting your absence online or by phone, you’ll need your ID number and PIN to get started. If you don’t know your login numbers, try your home phone number for your ID (10 digits, beginning with your area code, no spaces or dashes) and the last four digits of your Social Security number for your PIN. If you are still unable to access the system, contact Human Resources for assistance.
