Appointment End Date

Department personnel specialists have access to update Appointment End Date in HRIS for those in non-benefit positions. This date may be extended or updated using appropriate timelines and will be the trigger used to automatically terminate these employees during the payroll process. The HRIS Schedule/Calendar normally identifies the Thursday prior to the last day of the pay period as the Last Day to Update End of Temporary Appointment Date. Appointment End Date Instructions/Report appear on the following HR web page:
http://www.k-state.edu/hr/hris/hris_manuals-apptend.html

Updating Position Data in HRIS

Since the HRIS Employee Self Service training enrollment process identifies and sends e-mail notifications to the employee's supervisor, it is important to keep the employee's supervisor (Reports to (i.e., Position Number)) up-to-date. The employee's supervisor (Reports to (i.e., Position Number)) may be updated using the Position Update page. Path: Workforce Administration > Job Information > Position Update.

Please distribute this information to staff who are responsible for payroll accounting activities in your unit.
Suspension of Employer Contributions for KPERS Death and Disability Insurance

A moratorium has been issued to suspend employer contributions for KPERS Death and Disability Insurance from April 1, 2010 to June 30, 2010. This moratorium is effective with the pay period beginning March 21, 2010. The Death & Disability Insurance moratorium is for the employer paid group term life (GTL) contributions only. The moratorium does not extend to Board of Regents retirement plan members who elect to continue the Death & Disability Insurance coverage while on leave without pay. If members want to continue the Death & Disability Insurance coverage while on leave without pay, the employee must remit the required contribution to the Division of Human Resources. As you may remember, in Calendar Year 2009 a moratorium was issued on KPERS Death and Disability Insurance from March 1, 2009 through November 14, 2009.
