Do Exempt and Full Time faculty have to submit timesheets when they have not taken leave?

No, Exempt and Full Time Faculty only have to submit timesheets when they have taken leave.  If they do not take leave they do not have to submit the timesheet.  However it is important to note that leave taken may cross over a pay period, defined above, and the employee should take note of the requirement to submit leave according to the respective pay periods.


As a Faculty or Exempt employee, why do I have an hourly time sheet job in addition to my normal job?

If you have non-teaching or other work outside your normal contractual obligation, you will need to submit positive time for this work.


If we have someone who is not the supervisor checking time cards before the supervisor signs it, how will this work?

There is a process established that allows "alternate" approvers to approve timesheets.  These alternate approvers may or may not be supervisors but they must be full-time employees.   The Budget Administrators have been asked to establish alternate approvers.
