Timesheets, Payroll & Tax Info

Timesheet Submission - Workday

Hourly employees will submit their hours using Single Sign On - Workday. Hours entered into WORKDAY must reflect actual hours worked by the employee. To enter or edit time worked, please refer to the following instructions:

If an employee does not submit their time worked or if their submitted time is not approved by their supervisor by the appropriate deadline, and the employee does not receive a paycheck as a result of this, the employee will still need to enter and submit those working hours in Workday, and the supervisor will still need to approve them. The hours/pay owed to the employee will then be issued to the employee on the next available biweekly pay date.

If an hourly employee does not see the Time Worklet they will need to manually add it to their Workday Homepage. To add the Time Worklet, please refer to the following instructions:

Employees will need a valid photo I.D to pick up their check.
