Why do I have to fill out the Time and Leave Report?

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), a federal law, requires records be kept on total hours worked each day and each workweek for employees in overtime eligible positions to determine when they’re eligible to receive overtime compensation. Options were for all employees to complete positive time reports or move to the online TLR.

Who determines if a position is overtime eligible?

The Human Resources Department determines the overtime eligibility status for all positions based on criteria established by the U.S. Department of Labor.

Who is required to use TLR?

All overtime eligible staff must use TLR to report hours worked and leave taken. Exempt staff must use TLR to report leave taken. This does not include part-time faculty (PTF) unless you have an additional hourly job. Only the hours worked for your hourly job will be processed through TLR.

What do I need to access TLR?

You will need a Student Identification Number (SID), and PIN to access your TLR page. Contact Payroll Services (425) 739-8214 or Human Resources (425) 739-8212 for SID/PIN assistance.

What if I don’t have a computer?

You can use any computer with internet access. Campus options include eLearning and the Library Learning Commons.

Do I need a college e-mail address for TLR?

Yes. All college employees must have a college e-mail account. This is how you will receive notices about TLR processes. 

Will this eliminate hard copy Exception Time Reports?

For the most part, yes. However, revisions or corrections to time and leave previously processed will require a hard copy Time Report.

Note: You must include the reason for the leave taken in the Remarks section (except for vacation, personal and sick). Payroll will reject leave submitted without a remark.

When is my Time and Leave Report due?

You must submit your TLR by the 15th and 30th/31st of each month. If this is a regular day off or weekend, submit your record on your last working day before the deadline.

Supervisors – You must submit your TLR approvals by the following day.

Who do I submit my Time and Leave Report to?

When you electronically submit the TLR, it will go to your supervisor. Your supervisor will then approve and submit it to Payroll Services.

Note: When the timesheet is “In Process” status, the employee (you) has responsibility to submit it. Failure to submit a timesheet may cause a delay in pay or inaccurate reporting of leave balances.

What if my timesheet is rejected by my supervisor or Payroll?

If your timesheet is rejected for any reason, you must correct your hours or leave and resubmit it to your supervisor again for approval.

Will the pay periods change for hourly staff?

No, all employees will have the same pay periods of the 1st – 15th and the 16th – last day of the month.

Can I use TLR to submit leave for a future date?

Yes. TLR will have a 3-month period open for reporting. However, Payroll will not process it until the appropriate pay period. 

Will this replace my Time and Effort reporting?

No. You must still submit your Time and Effort reports.

The pay period is no longer showing on my TLR page. How can I report my time and leave?

If you have not previously submitted your TLR for the pay period, click the down arrow shown next to the current pay period and a window will open with a list of available pay periods you can select.
