Important Action & Information for Monthly-Paid Employees in Absence Management

Feb. 13, 2020

By 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 20, in preparation for the launch of the new Time and Absence Management (TAM) system, monthly-paid employees need to enter in Absence Management through HR Self Service all absences they will have taken on or before February 23, 2020.

The process to enter absences retroactively into the new system will be manual and arduous as individuals will have to complete and submit a form (available after February 24, the system go-live date).

Also, employees will not be able to enter any future absences scheduled on or after February 24 into the current Absence Management system. Employees will be able to enter them on or after February 24 following the new system implementation.

Changes in Absence Management

  • Schedules will auto-populate absences. Default schedules are being created for employees working a standard five-day a week schedule with 7.25 or 8 hours per day. Employees working flexible schedules or less than 100% duty time will work with their absence manager and or administrator to set up schedules.
  • The procedure for entering an absence less than a full day will change. The steps will be covered in a training video and a Quick Reference Guide, available on the finance and treasury website.
  • Navigation remains the same, and all historical records will be visible.

Additional information, including training videos and quick reference guides, is available on the Time and Absence webpage.
