Time Entry Guidelines for Early Release

UNT System last closed early at noon on Friday, December 20, 2019. Salaried employees who are full-time benefits-eligible received four hours of leave. The four hours of leave is prorated based on FTE for salaried employees who are part-time benefits-eligible. Further details are below.

Hourly employees

Hourly employees will only be paid for time physically worked. Regardless of how much time an hourly (student or non-student) employee is scheduled to work, they do not receive any compensation for time not actually worked. Only the hours the hourly employee physically worked should be entered.

Employees who are not eligible to receive leave require no special data entry.

Salaried employees

The amount of Leave – Agency Holiday-EMG each employee should receive during the December 2019 university closure is four hours for full-time benefits-eligible employees and is prorated based on FTE for those who are part-time benefits-eligible. For example, a part-time benefits-eligible employee who is 50 percent would receive two hours.

Employees who work during the closure must enter the time worked using code University Closure Worked (UCWK) in the EIS Time and Labor system. They also must enter the amount of Leave – Agency Holiday-EMG given in the eLeave system, to ensure correct comp time accruals.

Exceptions:
  • An employee does NOT receive University Closure leave when the employee is on Leave Without Pay Status during the closure.
  • Employees in Dock status (DOC) prior to the closure will not receive the closure hours and will need to be docked their scheduled hours. Timekeepers will input DOC and an override rate on the timesheet for the appropriate amount of hours.

How to enter time in EIS Time and Labor System

  1. Full-time benefits-eligible salaried employees will enter the hours on their timesheet for hours worked prior to the closure using the time reporting code REG – Regular Earnings.  The number of hours will be prorated based on FTE for part-time benefits-eligible salaried employees. See example 3 below.
  2. Full-time benefits-eligible salaried employees will use eLeave to submit a request using leave type Leave – Agency Holiday-EMG for the hours granted. The hours will automatically populate the employee’s timesheet as AHEMG – Leave - Agency Holiday-EMG once the eLeave request has been approved.  The number of hours will be prorated based on FTE for part-time benefits-eligible salaried employees.
  3. (if applicable): Employees who are required to work during the closure will enter the hours on their timesheet using the time reporting code UCWK – Univ. Closure Wrkd/Comp @ 1.0.
