Time Reporting

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Payroll Office at (312) 362-8540 or email ​

Salaried Employees (Exempt)

Salaried employees are responsible for documenting and submitting the number of vacation and floating holiday hours taken each pay period. Report vacation and floating holiday hours by entering them in the Time Reporting system in Campus Connection. As part of the review process, the budget manager or the employee’s direct supervisor will review and approve the Vacation/Sick Leave Balance Report on a monthly basis.

Hourly Employees (NonExempt)

Hourly employees are responsible for documenting and submitting the number of hours each pay period including:

  • Hours worked
  • Vacation time taken
  • Sick time taken
  • Holidays
  • Floating Holidays

Your hours begin with the time you start work, exclude the time you take for lunch, and end with the time you leave work.

Your supervisor will approve the number of hours you submit. The Payroll department will calculate your paycheck based on the hours that you have reported. Hourly employees receive overtime pay for hours they work over 40 hours per week.

Time Approval for Managers

Managers are responsible for making sure that hourly employees’ report their time worked (including vacation and sick time) by the close of each time reporting period. They are also responsible for approving time entered by their hourly employees each period. ​
