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


This user procedure provides step by step instructions for filling out and submitting an off-cycle missed payroll request submitted through a web form on the UWSS Service Operations web site. 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 UWSS Service Operations Payroll Team who will work with the web team to set up the new security.

Timesheet cleanup: Time and Labor Reported Time

If the reported time on the timesheet has been processed to payable time and is in an "Approved" status: Campus should remove the reported time from the timesheet and then after the next scheduled Time Admin job has run, approve the negative off-set hours generated as a result of removing the reported hours from the timesheet (net impact of removing the hours from the timesheet should be zero hours and have no impact on the employee).
1. If the reported time on the timesheet has been processed to payable time, was approved and is in a "Taken by Payroll" status: Campus should investigate the payable time in question to verify that the employee has not already been paid for the hours now being submitted on the missed payroll request.
2. If the reported time on the timesheet has been processed to payable time and the payable time is in "Needs Approval" status: Campus should remove the reported time and submit the timesheet.
3. If the reported time on the timesheet has been processed to payable time, was approved, and the payable time is in a "Rejected by Payroll" status: Campus should research why the payable time is in a "Rejected by Payroll" status.
4. If the reported time on the timesheet has been process to payable time and is in "Pushed Back" status: Campus should research why and not remove the hours from the timesheet.

  • Earnings Code: Select the Earnings Code under which the employee should be paid lists of the possible earnings codes can be found here: University Staff | Student Hourly

This shows the requester if the employee has already received any pay checks for the same time period. Please review before proceeding! This will prevent multiple or duplicate requests processed or the employee.
  • Weekly Missed Hours: There is a set of day fields from Sunday to Saturday for each of the two weeks in a bi-weekly pay period.  Enter the number of hours the employee should be paid for in each of the desired days.  It is not necessary to enter zero hours in days for which there is no pay.  Note that the number of hours you are requesting the employee be paid for is not necessarily the number of hours they worked that day.  If an employee worked 8 hours in a day but was only paid for 3, you would request that they be paid for the remaining 5 hours.
