UNI Timecard/Payroll

UNI Time provides the University with electronic time entry for all employees including Academic Administrators, Faculty Institutional Officials, Merit, Professional and Scientific and student employees.  There are exceptions to this for the majority of the Physical Plant merit staff and the student employees in the Department of Residence Dining area.

Once a timecard is completed and submitted, the workflow process electronically routes the timecard for approval and when approved routes to Payroll for processing.  Payroll processes all approved timecards each Thursday at 10 a.m. It is the employee and department's responsibility to verify weekly timecards are in an approved status by 10 a.m. each Thursday.  The best practice is for employees to submit their timecard by early Monday to allow the timecard approver time to review and approve the timecard.  

The workweek for all employees reporting time is Sunday through Saturday. Students are paid on a bi-weekly basis. Faculty and staff are paid monthly and will receive their pay the last working day of each month.

Salaried P&S employees, calendar year Academic Administrators and Institutional Officials have exception reporting and record sick leave used, vacation taken, off duty, jury duty, holidays, etc. Each month an electronic timecard must be completed, even if the employee worked all month and has no exceptions to report.

United Faculty and academic year Academic Administrators accruing only sick leave submit an electronic timecard only in months with absences to report.

Merit system and hourly P&S employees use positive reporting and complete weekly electronic timecards to record all hours worked, including overtime, comp time, sick leave used, vacation taken, holidays, etc.

Student employees record the start and stop times on their timecard and the timecard system calculates the total hours each day and for the week.

The resources here use both printed documents and interactive simulations to provide staff with support for the role(s) they perform in the time entry process.
