General Reminders
  • Manage Time Exceptions — If an exception is allowable, select the "Allow" checkbox next to the employee's name and enter a coment describing the allowable situation and select "Save." To access the COMMENT box, got to the Details Tab and scroll all the way to the right. More information can be found at
  • Run and review absence reports located in HR/Timekeeper/Approver pagelet prior to timekeeper and approver cutoff.
  • Docks — When an employee has exhausted leave time to cover an absence, dock time must be entered in the Absence Management module. These transactions should be entered and approved as soon as the dock situation is known. Docks entered before the monthly Payroll Cutoff date will help to ensure accurate payment. Docks entered after the cutoff date may delay an employee´s pay and/or generate an obligation for repayment.

    NOTE: For the monthly master payroll certification process, only docks that have been entered and approved prior to the MPC run/capture date are reflected on MPC.
  • Hourly employees who earn sick and/or vacation and do not report any time off during a given pay period are required to report “No Leave Taken” in Absence Management.
