Hourly/Non-Exempt Timesheets for June 25–July 1

in Human Capital Management
June 26th, 2012

Timekeepers and Managers

Please communicate this information to all weekly paid employees in your business units.  Due to the July 4th holiday next Wednesday, all non-exempt employee timesheets for the June 25th – July 1st payroll period must be released and approved by noon this Monday, July 2nd, 2012.

It is important that those employees who work Monday through Friday this week enter and release their hours for this pay period this Friday, June 29, providing managers/timekeepers adequate time to approve timesheets before the Monday noon deadline.  Those who work weekends should try to release their time by Sunday July 1st.

Employees taking time off the week of July 2-8th who are eligible for holiday pay, should enter July 4th as “BU Holiday Pay (1012)” and enter remaining hours for the week using the appropriate Absence/Attendance Type(s).  The Time Management Team requests that employees and managers please plan ahead for time entry, release and approvals.  Below are a few tips:

  • Please make sure that there is a “back-up” approver for those who normally approve, but will be unable to approve remotely.
  • It is recommended that the entire process (entering hours – releasing hours – approving hours) be completed by the end of the day on Friday, June 29th, 2012.
  • If an employee plans on taking vacation or personal time during the last week of June, make sure that the Manager/Timekeeper knows how to “release/approve” time in the future (employees do not have the ability to perform this task):
