Employee Time and HR Actions

Manager Self-Service (MSS) is a BUworks tool used to maintain employees’ position and salary information. Access to MSS depends on your role at the University.

Timekeepers and managers can approve, review, modify, or enter time sheets for hourly employees through MSS.

Managers and payroll coordinators can hire faculty and temporary employees, including non-compensated affiliates, and initiate employee personnel actions such as promotions, transfers, and terminations. They can also view their unit’s organizational chart (and export to PDF or PowerPoint formats) and view all position information including cost distribution, employee group, and compensation. Managers and payroll coordinators play critical roles in the initial entry and maintenance of employee information in SAP.

MSS forms for managers include the Organizational Unit Request Form, Create Position Form, Maintain Position Form, Delimit Position Form, and Hiring Form.
