UH/UHS Time & Labor Implementation
By Carla Ponzio

Phase One of the Time & Labor project went live on April 16.  What this means to employees is the paper timesheets they would normally receive on the first of May for monthly employees will no longer be printed and distributed.  Monthly employees will log into P.A.S.S. at www.my.uh.edu to record their leave time.  If no leave was taken during the month, the employee will not log into P.A.S.S. to record regular hours.  The payroll system generates the regular hours and holiday hours automatically, there is no approval needed for those hours. 

Instructions for reporting their time are available here under the heading of Time & Labor.          

Time & Labor is the PeopleSoft module that provides the electronic timesheet in P.A.S.S.  After the employee has recorded their leave time in P.A.S.S., the timesheet will be available to the person that approves their time.  Once the leave hours on the timesheet are approved, Payroll will run a process called Time Administration which allows the person responsible for the payroll within the department to approve the payable time.  Instructions for Time Approvers and Payroll Approvers are also available at the HRMS training link listed above.

Training classes were provided to Time Approvers and Payroll approvers in April and will continue up to the middle of May.  An online training tutorial for Time Reporters is available at the HRMS link above  (click on Time Reporter Training).  Users are walked through the process of entering leave time on an electronic timesheet.
