HR System Maintenance November 3rd to 6th

Employees will not have access to their online timesheet, earnings statements and other related documents and services during a UW Human Resources System (HRS) outage that will occur from 4:00 p.m. on Friday, November 3, 2017 to Monday morning, November 6, 2017.  This outage is due to system maintenance.  The following self-service features that employees access through the My UW System portal will be unavailable during this outage:

  • Online timesheet
  • Absence reporting
  • Updates to personal information
  • Access to electronic earnings statements, tax statements (W-2, 1042-S, etc.), leave statements and other HR, Payroll and Benefits documents

This HRS outage will also affect all currently posted recruitments, as applicants will not be able to get into TAM (Talent Acquisition Manager) to apply for positions.  We will have a notice posted on our career opportunities page and on individual postings throughout the weekend.  Campus employees who are involved in recruitments will also not be able to access TAM during this time.

Please plan ahead to take care of HR, payroll, benefits or recruitment related tasks in the portal before the outage begins.  Once the HR system is updated, we will have similar functionality that we are used to – there will be minimal impact on the system look and feel.  Please contact Human Resources at hr@uwgb.edu or ext. 2390 if you have any questions.
