Time Entry Procedures

Time entry is done at the departmental level by the Time Keeping Administrators. Timekeepers are required to enter time for all hourly employees and exception time for all salaried employees. Timekeepers must have their entries verified. All time sheets must be at a payroll disposition of “20” in order to be paid.
