This Week's ePostcard
SSTA Time Reporting
Details: Reporting Leave Time and Prior
Pay Period Adjustments (ePostcard #3)
Self-Service Time and Attendance (SSTA) puts you in the drivers seat when it comes to reporting time!
Reporting Leave Time
With SSTA you can
enter leave time directly onto your timesheet. A list of common Time Reporting
Codes (TRCs), such as SIC (Sick Time Paid - Normal), VAC (Vacation Leave Paid) and PER
(Personal Leave Paid), is available in a drop down list on your timesheet to make it easy. Be sure to
follow your existing leave time pre-approval process.
To enter leave time you will need to:
1. Login to the SSTA website
2. Scroll down your online timesheet to confirm your leave balances
Edit your timesheet information for the day on which you took
leave, entering the number of hours of leave
and selecting the correct Time Reporting Code (TRC) from the drop down list.
4. Click submit!
Time Reporting Codes for Reporting Holiday Time
With SSTA, you need to report holiday time. You report holiday time the same way
you report leave time.
The most commonly used time reporting code for holidays is HLN. Use HLN (Holiday Pay - Normal) to
report time off when a holiday occurs on a regularly scheduled workday and you are not required to work.
Other holiday TRCs may be available to you depending on your situation.
Here is a quick review of the holiday TRCs and when they are used:
þ HLN Use HLN when a holiday falls on a regularly scheduled workday and you are not required to work.
þ HWC Use HWC when you are required to work on a holiday and will earn comp time in lieu of holiday pay.
Use HLP in the rare
situation where your agency has authorized you to receive additional pay when
the holiday falls on your scheduled day off.
HOL is used for police officers and power plant employees
only. HOL is used when your agency
has authorized you to receive both REGULAR pay and HOLIDAY pay while working on the holiday.
You can learn more about TRCs in the online learning courses, job aids, and
posters that will be available
at your work location.
Making Prior Pay Period Adjustments
With SSTA, you can adjust your reported time up to one pay period
in the past. This feature makes
correcting timesheet inaccuracies easy.
To make an adjustment you will need to:
1. Login to the SSTA website
2. Click Previous Week to navigate to the relevant date(s)
3. Make the desired change to your timesheet, updating hours or time reporting codes
4. Click Submit!
Keep in mind your time approver will need to approve any changes to your timesheet.
