Time/Labor and Absence Management Implementation

August 1, 2021, UofSC employees started using a new time reporting and leave request system. This new system replaced ITAMS and implemented additional modules in HCM PeopleSoft bringing pay, time, and absence management together into one system.

Time and Absence Queries and Reports are Now Available on the WorkCenter!

Time and Absence queries and reports are now available on the Time and Absence WorkCenter for individuals that approve timesheets and absence requests as either manager or TL/ABS approver. The below Time and Absence Queries and Reports Reference Guide provides detailed information about each query/report, along with some helpful tips.

Temporary and student employees who enter all time worked into the timesheet (your offer letter mentioned an FLSA status of Non-Exempt and a pay type of hourly).

Staff and faculty employees in FTE, Research Grant, or Time Limited positions who are Exempt from the FLSA and as such do not enter regular working hours into a timesheet. These employees only do exception time reporting in a timesheet (working on a holiday or hazardous weather). They are often referred to as ‘Salaried Exempt’ (your offer letter mentioned an FLSA Status of Exempt and referenced an annual salary amount).

Employees that are in positions that are approved for call back, on call, and/or shift differential will utilize Time and Labor punch timesheets to track time worked.

Temporary and student employees in positions which are Exempt from the FLSA and as such do not enter working hours into a timesheet (your offer letter mentioned an FLSA Status of Exempt and referenced an annual salary amount). (Note: For purposes of this Time and Absence system, only exempt temporary staff will be entering leave of absence hours into a timesheet. TFAC (adjuncts) and exempt student employees do not enter any time worked or leave of absence into the timesheet.

 

Time and Absence queries and reports are now available on the Time and Absence WorkCenter for individuals that approve timesheets and absence requests as the manager. The recording and presentation for the manager training session are available below.
