What is Time/Labor and Absence Management?
Time and Labor is a PeopleSoft application that allows employees to report working hours and leave directly into the HCM PeopleSoft system using timesheets in Employee Self Service.
Absence Management is where paid time off (Sick Leave, Annual Leave, and other types of leave) will be requested, approved, and transferred to Time and Labor for payroll purposes.
All employees (students, staff, and faculty), currently using ITAMS for time reporting and requesting leave, will be directly impacted.
Here are just a few of the reasons why a new time reporting system is so important:
- Easy access to timesheets in Employee Self Service
- Pay stubs and timecards will be in one system
- Efficiency in payroll processing
- Manager validation of employee time
- Greater reporting capabilities for managers
Pay cycles will not change and commitment to customer service will continue to be our primary focus.
One of the most important aspects of a successful implementation is providing proper training. We want to equip you with the tools and confidence you need to enter time worked and request time off with ease.
Due to the volume of employees that will require training, online resources will be offered in an on-demand and self-paced format to include recorded webinars, on-screen simulations and printable job aids. Employees will have the opportunity to work through practical and relevant situations as you explore entering time in the new system.
As implementation continues, we will continue to add updates and further information to our website. If you have any questions, please contact CMTEAM@sc.edu.
