Recording eTime in HRIS
Time entry in HRIS/Employee Self Service will be limited to one pay period at a time to avoid confusion. The first Monday of each pay period the eTime entry and approval pages for the prior pay period will close at 5:00 p.m. and the eTime entry and approval pages for the current pay period will open at 5:01 p.m.
|Pay Period||eTime Document/Approval Available at 5:01 pm||eTime Document/Approval Deadline at 5:00 pm|
Note: Department timelines may differ and need to be observed.
eTime Entry Page
eTime Entry page via HRIS/Employee Self Service replaces the hard copy time document and allows hours worked to be recorded each day, week, or pay period. After recording hours worked, select the Save for Later or Submit for Approval button.
- Save for Later: Saves the recorded hours and allows user further access to add and/or update hours. This button does not forward hours to supervisor/approver for approval.
- Submit for Approval: This button saves the hours recorded and forwards hours to supervisor/ approver for approval. Once Submit for Approval has been selected, hours cannot be changed within this page.
After Submit for Approval has been selected, the supervisor and the employee will be notified via e-mail from HRIS. The supervisor is responsible for approving or rejecting the recorded hours.
Approved hours will be forwarded to payroll for processing and the employee and supervisor will be notified via e-mail from HRIS.
Rejected hours will reactivate the employee's eTime Document for correction and the employee and supervisor will be notified via e-mail from HRIS. The employee is responsible for making the adjustment quickly and resubmitting for approval prior to the deadline for a timely paycheck.
Late Time Entries
Those who miss the deadline for entering hours for the current pay period will need to contact their supervisor and/or department personnel specialist for instructions.
For those who have multiple positions, a page with all available positions will appear. Select the appropriate position and record hours. If multiple positions should be present and only one position appears, please contact your supervisor or department personnel specialist for instructions.
