EmpCenter is a web-based browser supported software program used to automate the processing and approval of hours worked and taken, and requests for and approval of planned absences. It also allows for online viewing of leave balances
The primary goals for implementing EmpCenter are:
This decision will be at the discretion of the Deans and VP's. Consistency is preferred.
Implementation began on February 4, 2013, with a requirements gathering workshop with WorkForce Software, the company from which we are licensing the EmpCenter software. Configuration of the system and testing will be conducted in the coming months, with an anticipated Go-Live by the end of summer, 2013.
here will be a phased approach to the implementation across both campuses and all locations.
My supervisor allows me to flex my hours each work day both for the number of hours worked for a particular day and/or for the start and end times. Will I have the same flexibility with the new system?
Managers will continue to have the authority to allow you to flex your hours within the guidelines of University rules and wage laws.
To be decided based on system configuration and the decision made by your V.P. or Dean as to how time will be captured within your unit.
We will work with departments to identify and verify that the appropriate manager has access to approve time worked and taken and planned absences.
We will utilize a Train the Trainer approach and classes will be held on campus for users, approvers, and administrators. Training will initially be scheduled in the summer with ongoing training provided after that.
The preference is that all time will be collected through your desktop or laptop computer through a “web clock” that will be accessible. However, some departments may require a data collection terminal (DCT) to collect your time. That decision will be left to the discretion of your manager.
No, your Supervisor will need to make corrections.
No, they will need to have access to the appropriate collection device – in this instance a computer (web clock) to enter their time.
You will have the ability to enter time by Job Code. Each Job Code will submit a timesheet to the designated Supervisor for approval.
The system will generate emails to all supervisors notifying them if the employee goes over their allotted hours.
A sheet for manual timekeeping is available from Payroll in the event of a temporary outage. Supervisors will be responsible for entering the employee time.
EmpCenter will work with Internet Explorer 7 and above, Safari, Firefox and Chrome.
A one year history will be available in EmpCenter starting from the Go Live forward.
It is the Supervisor’s responsibility to periodically review EmpCenter for open requests.
That is up to the employee’s Supervisor.
Yes, EmpCenter is configured to enable all three methods.
