Employee, Manager and Timekeeper Responsibilities
Chief Human Resource Officer
The Chief Human Resource Officer is responsible for ensuring that this document is necessary, reflects actual practice, and supports University policy.
Non-exempt Salaried Employees
FLSA requires that non-exempt employees must be compensated for hours physically worked over 40 hours in a work week.
Non-exempt employees are required to enter both hours worked and hours taken.
It is the employee’s responsibility to complete and submit the timecard for the current pay period in a timely manner.
Prior pay periods (retro-active) cannot be entered into SSTL. A UVA Time Management form must be completed (refer to Chapter 4 for entry requirements), and submitted to the departmental Timekeeper. The form, along with a letter of explanation, will be faxed to the Central HR/Leave Center or Central HR/Payroll as appropriate. Retro-active requests should be minimal.
If the employee cannot complete the timecard, the employee must contact his/her manager so that the entries can be made prior to the deadline.
If the employee does not submit the timecard (and does not notify the manager or Timekeeper to complete the timecard) prior to the 5 p.m. Monday deadline, the employee will not be paid. However, the Timekeeper may manually enter the hours using the employee’s annual leave so that payment can be made.
Exempt Salaried Employees
Exempt employees are not compensated for hours worked in excess of 40 hours in the work week. (Exempt employees are referred to as being “auto-paid”). The exceptions are: if an exempt employee works the holiday or during an official agency closing.
Otherwise, exempt employees only enter leave taken or confirm on the timecard that no leave was taken.
If an exempt employee does not complete and submit the timecard for the current pay period in a timely manner, the employee will be paid.
Prior pay periods (retro-active) cannot be entered into SSTL. A UVA Time Management form must be completed (refer to Chapter 4 for entry requirements), and submitted to the departmental Timekeeper. The form, along with a letter of explanation, will be faxed to the Central HR/Leave Center. Retro-active requests should be minimal.
Wage (Hourly) Employees
Wage (hourly) employees are required to submit a timecard for all assignments for all hours worked. Wage (hourly) employees should complete all timecards for all assignments prior to submitting the timecard.
Wage employees do not earn leave. Wage employees are paid for hours worked. The hours worked in a week in excess of 40 hours are calculated by the system at the premium pay rate (Time and a half overtime rate).
If a wage employee does not complete and submit the timecard for the current pay period in a timely manner, the employee will not be paid.
Prior pay periods (retro-active) cannot be entered into SSTL. A UVA Time Management form must be completed (refer to Chapter 4 for entry requirements), and submitted to the departmental Timekeeper. The form, along with a letter of explanation, will be faxed to Central HR/Payroll (FAX: 924-6306). Retro-active requests should be minimal.
The Manager (supervisor of the employee) approves or rejects the SSTL timecard submitted by the employee. Managers will receive a workflow notification e-mail that a timecard has been submitted for approval. The Manager can review and approve or reject the timecard directly from the e-mail or use UVA Manager Self-Service.
Managers are required to approve timecards. Employee timecards can be reviewed and approved directly from the e-mail notification or from the notification in UVA Manager Self-Service.
After payroll has processed, Discoverer report IS.PAY_Unapproved Timecards is run to identify timecards for employees that have not yet been approved. First notice that action must be taken, will be sent by the Timekeeper. Subsequent notices (if no action taken) will be sent from Central HR/Payroll. If no action taken, the Executive VP’s and Audit will be notified.
Managers must remember to only Approve or Reject a timecard. Comments may be added in the Comment field on the timecard, but NO TEXT should be entered in the e-mail notification. Any added text in the body of the e-mail will create an error in workflow.
