Comp (Compensatory) Time

Comp time earned July 1 through December 31 and not used by June 30 or last pay period of the Fiscal Year, will be paid in the first paycheck in July. Comp time earned January 1 through June 30 and not used by December 31 or last pay period of the calendar year, will be paid in the first paycheck in January.

How does Comp Time Pay Off work?

In general, compensatory (comp) time earned in the first six months of the year, if not used in the second six months of the year, is paid out in the first check of January. This cycle repeats every six months with pay outs in January and July.

Trouble Shooting

You get the error message, “Not an Active Time Reporter”This occurs when your job start date is not the Sunday of the beginning of a pay period. Here’s what you’ll need to do:
In Time & Labor

  • Change the View By: drop down to Week

  • Change the Date to (your start date)

  • Click Refresh

If the boxes still don’t open up, call payroll at 426-4440
The boxes are grey and won’t let you enter time
Can’t see your employee’s time sheet

  • Make sure the employee submitted time. You will only see employees that have entered their hours.

  • It may have been approved by your supervisor. Your supervisor can see their direct reports (you) and your direct reports (your employees), sometimes they approve all by mistake.

You can look at Report Time and View Time to see if the employee reported and if and who approved the time.
