An employee’s FTE (full-time equivalent) represents the percentage of the employee's work schedule compared to a 40 hour/week schedule. For example, an employee who works 40 hours per week is 100% FTE, while an employee who works 20 hours per week is 50% FTE.
An employee’s FTE determines how many leave hours are accrued. If an employee’s FTE changes, you will need to change the employee’s FTE and work schedule in OWLS. Doing so will ensure the employee’s leave accrual rates and scheduled hours per day are correctly displayed.
To change the FTE in OWLS, open the employee’s record, and perform the following steps:
11. Click on the "Quick Schedule Fill" button.
12. If the change is retroactive, refer to the printed calendar months and update all affected months with correct work and leave hours used.
To learn more about alternate work schedules, please visit the Alternate Work Schedules page.
Hierarchy dictates FTE change must be made before work schedule.
