The employee WTE submission preferred deadline is 9 a.m. on Time Entry Mondays (or other day designated for Time Entry due to holiday or campus closings).
This means that employees should have their hours Submitted for Approval by the 9 a.m. deadline. However, 2:30 p.m. on Time Entry Monday is a “Hard Deadline,” which means that employees will not be able to update or submit their time record after 2:30 p.m.
Please note that this impacts WTE submissions returned to employees for correction after 2:30 p.m. Any submissions returned to an employee for correction after the 2:30 p.m. deadline CANNOT be resubmitted by the employee. Instead, assistance from the Payroll Office will be required for resubmission of the returned time sheet.
If an approver changes an employee’s time submission after the 2:30 p.m. deadline, the approver is required to communicate the change to the employee, and the employee must acknowledge acceptance of the change. This communication must be cc copied to the payroll coordinator (Jim Tuttle) and retained in the payroll files for at least four years to ensure compliance with the state’s payroll and record keeping requirements (NH State Regulation Lab 803.03.f.2) for automated time-keeping systems.
Supervisors placing approvals on timesheets should keep in mind that the payroll office is open until 4:30 p.m. and will want to place their approvals prior to the 3 p.m. preferred approval deadline so that they can get assistance from the Payroll Office if needed.
The “Hard Deadline” for approving is 9 p.m. After this hard deadline, approvers will not be able to place approvals and will need to seek assistance from the Payroll Office.
