ACT - Actual Hours Worked

If an employee codes more leave than is in their available balance, the payroll system uses defaults to ensure the employee has exhausted all applicable leave balances before converting to leave without pay.

Override fields cannot be changed.
 


The Override Indicators can be used to change (override) an employee's record for a single pay period, the pay period they are entering time for. The override fields cannot be changed unless the employee is eligible to accrue or receive pay for Overtime and be eligible for Shift pay.
 
Employees that are eligible for shift pay can override their 'Shift' indicator.  An Approver, a Time Entry Assistant (TEA), and the Central Payroll Officer (CPO) can override both the 'Overtime' and 'Shift’ indicators.  A numeric value must be entered to override the first week, second week or both weeks.
 
The RHH indicator is not used.
 
Note:  The time sheet for an 'H' hourly employee with a FLSA code 'B', 'D', 'J' or 'Q' will show the OVT field as editable.  If the CPO updates this field to something other than 'N', the employee's time will error when payroll is run.
 
Submitting your time:
 
You have the option to:
 


Save

Submit – Will submit the time sheet as it is, and send to the Approver, Reviewer or the Central Payroll Officer (CPO).  If your agency uses the Leave/Overtime Request, you cannot submit your time sheet until the Leave/Overtime Request has been approved.  An error message will be displayed until the request has been approved.  After a time sheet has been submitted you will be able to make changes until the review is completed or the time sheet has been approved.
 
Comments – An employee can add comments to their own time sheet.  A CPO can also add comments to the employee's time sheet. There is a 64,000 character limit.
 
Reset – Will not save any current changes, it will reset the time sheet to the last time it was saved.  If a time sheet has never been saved the time sheet will return to its original blank form. 
 
Status At the bottom of the page there is a status section that will allow you to view your time sheet and know where it is in the approval process.  The status section will be similar to the image displayed below.

Awaiting Approval by Approver
