Timecard deadlines for the Holiday/Recess weeks:
Timecards for the week of December 15 - 21 must be approved by Noon on Thursday, December 19th
Timecards for the week of December 22 - 28 must be approved by Noon on Monday, December 30th
The following is a reminder of the differences between ‘Standard’ and ‘Non Standard’ employees and how this effects the completion of the timecards during the Holiday/Recess week:
Exempt and Non-Exempt employees that work Monday - Friday, 7.5 or 8 hours per day.
Holidays are pre-populated on the timecard, however Recess days are not.
If a Standard employee works on a Holiday/Recess day, in addition to recording 7.5 hours of Recess or Holiday on the day in which they worked, they must also enter either ‘Recess Worked’ or ‘Holiday Worked’ on their timecard.
The following is an example of how the timecards should be completed for a ‘Standard’ employee that did not work during the Holiday/Recess weeks:
Sunday Dec 22
Monday Dec 23
Tuesday Dec 24
Wednesday Dec 25
Thursday Dec 26
Friday Dec 27
Saturday Dec 28
Sunday Dec 29
Monday Dec 30
Tuesday Dec 31
Wednesday Jan 1
Thursday Jan 2
Friday Jan 3
Saturday Jan 4
*Note: Since the timecard defaults the Hours Worked on December 26, 27, 30 and 31, these hours must be deleted. It will then be necessary to add the Recess Hours Type and the appropriate hours.
Non Standard Employees:
Exempt and Non-Exempt employees that do not work Monday - Friday, 7.5 or 8 hours per day.
Holidays and Recess days will not be pre-populated on the timecard and must manually be entered.
If they worked on a Holiday/Recess day, they must enter “Holiday Worked” and/or “Recess Worked”.
The following Holiday and Recess tools have been developed to assist both employees and supervisors with the completion of timecards for all possible scenarios during the Holiday/Recess weeks:
These tools are also available on all employee timecards. If your questions are not answered within the Holiday/Recess tools above please call the PRISM TRKS helpline at 412-383-TIME (8463) or email@example.com.
