Beginning with the November 2014 pay period, exempt employees (those staff that is not eligible for overtime), begin reporting their leave usage in CalTime.
See CalTime website for more information: http://caltime.berkeley.edu/
Non-exempt employees, those eligible to earn overtime or comp time, will be moving to a bi-weekly pay schedule on August 31, 2014, and will begin reporting their hours in CalTime at that time. For more information about the bi-weekly transition, please see CalTime FAQs: http://caltime.berkeley.edu/faq-page
Until these transitions are completed, timesheets for variable employees are due in the business office by the middle of the month, usually, the 15th, to ensure timely payments. Please refer to the following worksheet for a list of due dates through December of the current year. For fixed employees that accrue vacation and sick leave, timesheets are due in the Business Office by the 7th of the following month, or prior business day, for the pay period for which they are reporting.
NOTE: GSR and other academic variable employees (non-leave accruing), are out of scope for CalTime and should continue to submit time sheets to the Business Service office, by our internal deadlines.
