Most campus employees will not be working the week between Christmas and New Year's. As such, all are encouraged to report time for both weeks in the pay period before you leave for the break.
For those employees using HR Direct time reporting self-service, there is no system change in the deadlines to report. Employees have until Sunday, January 3rd @ 5:00 to report their time in HR Direct. Managers/Approvers can approve time until Monday, January 4th @ 11:59 PM (Midnight). (NOTE: Managers can only begin to approve time after the Time Administration process runs. The first time that is run each pay period is on the Wednesday morning of the first week. Managers can begin approving time on Wednesday afternoon - 12/23 - around 3:00pm.)
Department managers with employees using time & labor self-service may wish to set an earlier deadline for their staff to report time. As a reminder, the deadline for employees to make changes is one day prior to when you can approve them. Hence, if you wish to approve on Thursday, your employees should report time by Wednesday.
