Other Campuses Moving To Time and Labor
UH Clearlake, UH Downtown, and UH Victoria plan to implement Time and Labor for monthly employees in August. Campus trainers recently completed training provided by HRMS. They return to begin the process of training their employees and assisting them with the Payroll Approver and Time Approver setup.

Payroll Approvers & Time Approvers Important Notice!
PAs and TAs need to remember to add new employees to the Time Approver. If an employee transfers to another department or campus, the Time Approver needs to reassign their time reporters to the new Time Approver. These are on-going business processes for future new hires and transfers.

Leave time in Time and Labor can be approved for the prior 60 days from the current date. If the leave is older than 60 days, send the leave request to payroll who will make a leave adjustment.

Alternate Time Approvers
Payroll Approvers and Time Approvers can assign an alternate to approve time in their absence.

This is done on the Maintain Payroll Approvers page and the Maintain Time Approvers Page.

If the alternate is approving time, they must use the group id that belongs to the
TA or the PA.

Deadlines for time entry and approval.
Time reporters should have their time entered by the last day of the month for that month.
Time approvers should approve time by the 5th business day of the following month.
Payroll approvers should approve time by the 10th business day of the following month.

New T&L Queries
UPAY_TL_REPORTED_TIME returns reported time, approval status, and approver for a selected emplid.

UPAY_TL_PAYABLE_TIME returns payable time, payable status, and approver for a selected employee.
