Work Hours W Timesheet (for overtime eligible employees)

OWLS will automatically calculate the annual leave accrual rate and month based on entries in the employee’s profile. Each time you update an employee’s record, OWLS will calculate the new leave balances.

OWLS is not, however, tied to the payroll system. Payroll coordinators will need to enter into Exception Time Reporting (ETR) the appropriate earn types that correspond to the overtime worked & paid and leave without pay OWLS codes.

ACT

To enter hours worked and leave hours used, you will need the employee’s approved timesheet and any applicable supporting documentation. To make these entries, open the employee’s record and perform the following steps:

1. Select (highlight) the day(s) into which you wish to make entries by clicking in the calendar. 2. From the drop down, select the code you wish to enter or modify. 3. Enter the number of hours.
         4. Click 'Update Calendar.' 5. When entries have been completed for the  month, click 'Submit Month & Send PERMs.'

If you are trying to navigate back to a prior month and the navigation stops at a specific month, it is likely that the month you are trying to access is in an ended record. To learn how to view ended records, visit the Accessing Prior Records page.

You cannot go forward until a month is submitted or resubmitted. To learn how to edit an error in a previous month, visit the Editing a Month page.
