Best Practices:

Summer Payrolls



What’s Next:

Upcoming Elluminate Sessions

payroll contact dos
Payroll Contact DOs
  • DO remind staff of the following:
  • Discuss payroll issues Monday through Thursday
  • Sign up for Direct Deposit via ESS if they are still receiving paper pay checks
  • Update contact information (including address) via ESS
  • DO the following:
  • Process the required payroll documentation in a timely manner
      • Payroll reports must be reviewed and approved before payments are finalized (even in the summer!)
  • Ensure there is an experienced Back-up Payroll Contact ready, willing and able to fill-in during your absence
payroll contact do nots
Payroll Contact DO NOTs
  • DO NOT project attendances unless directed to do so via ERP/BRITE communications
  • DO NOT plan to enter absences retroactively – time should be entered daily
    • Late entry of an absence can cause an overpayment
  • DO NOT wait to collect required payroll documentation upon your return to work
    • Payroll reports must be reviewed and approved before payments are finalized
  • DO NOT give your sign-on/password information to anyone
    • Sharing your SAP access equals sharing your personal data (bank details, social security #, dependent information, etc.)
    • The Back-up Payroll Contact MUST use his/her personal sign-on/password information
summer back ups
Summer Back-ups
  • Best Practices require all locations to have at least one Back-up for all major roles
  • Locations should be reviewing back-up support NOW for the Payroll Contact, HR Action Processor, Budget keeper, etc. to ensure adequate coverage when needed
  • Plan for the unexpected:
    • Temporary Replacement for Primary Payroll Contact (i.e. Summer coverage)
    • Primary Payroll Contact retires, is laid off, or resigns
    • Primary Payroll Contact is unavailable for any reason
  • The Back-up should not be someone on the same schedule as the employee with the primary role
    • Defeats the purpose of having a Backup – neither are available to perform the required duties
  • Cannot be the site Administrator
    • The person performing the duties must be different from the approver
back up payroll contact
Back-up Payroll Contact
  • The Back-up Payroll Contact:
  • Must be assigned the Payroll Contact role
  • Must attend training in order to have the Payroll Contact role assigned
    • If the role was previously assigned but the Back-up has not attended training, access to required transactions was removed
  • Must know how to sign-in and perform Payroll Contact functions
    • The Back-up should be allowed to complete time entry functions on a regular basis
  • Can belong to another Org Unit
    • Requires a Dual Access Time Entry (DATE) position to gain access to employees in the secondary Org Unit
    • Form to request the DATE position is located on the BRITE website
tracking attendance
Tracking Attendance
  • Question: How is Attendance tracked at your location?
      • ______ KRONOS Time Clock or COMPASS
      • ______ Sign-in Sheet (by school, department, etc.)
      • ______ Individual Time Sheets
      • ______ Don’t track Attendance, just Absences
      • ______ No Answer or None of the Above
