Submitting an Off-Cycle Missed Payroll Request (Monthly) in HRS


This user procedure provides step by step instructions for filling out and submitting an off-cycle missed payroll request through a web form on the UWSS Service Operations web site for FA/AS/LI monthly staff. After the request has been submitted, it will either be approved or denied by one of the campus/division approvers.
To gain access to request or approve a Missed Payroll, your HR Director needs to send an Email to the appropriate AG Group requesting the access. The ticket should then be sent to the Service Center payroll team who will work with the web team to set up new people.
