The "HR for Staff - Office of the Provost/University College" website pages are designed for employees within the Office of the Provost  and University College departments (Orgs: 02 & 35). They are intended to provide Org specific info as well as direct staff to other appropriate HR sites. It is not intended to take the place of UI policies/procedures but only address HR related issues and under the Provost umbrella and Org specific processes. Primarily you should reach out to your HR Rep for assistance.
