Logging Hours Worked by On-Campus Staff

Any employees who use Time Tracker to log hours and who are reporting to work on campus should continue to use the system.  Only employees working remotely should not use the system.  Supervisors will need to continue to approve weekly logs of those using the system.

Also any hourly, non-full time employees will have to clock in order to receive payment.
