HRIS Report Manager - Deleting Reports from Report List
New functionality has been added to HRIS.  You may now delete unneeded reports from your report list.  Deleting unneeded reports will free up space on the server and maximize HRIS processing potential.  Instructions:  http://www.k-state.edu/hr/hris/hris-reports.html

Questions regarding this new functionality may be directed to Alma Deutsch at almamd@ksu.edu or 785.532.1448.

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has updated the Federal Minimum Wage poster effective June 2007 to reflect the new federal minimum wage of $5.85 per hour.  This poster is required to be posted on Official Bulletin Boards in buildings across campus.  The new poster may be accessed at the DOL web site at http://www.dol.gov/esa/regs/compliance/posters/flsa.htm.
