The following guiding principles have been established for Kronos Time & Attendance system implementation:
Provide Temple University administration and staff, student workers, and work-study students with a centralized system for recording, reporting, and approving all employee time, attendance and leave activity.
All Temple employees are required to use the Kronos system, except for TAUP and Law Faculty, Adjunct faculty, and graduate students receiving an assistantship, internship, or externship.
Employees that are paid by the hour will use the system to record hours worked and leave time.
Other employees will use the system to record leave time, at a minimum.
Provide a single time and attendance system to interface with both the current HRS payroll system, and the future Banner payroll system.
Ensure pay practices are consistent within each bargaining unit based on the union contract.
Allow each school, college and administrative department to determine and use the best method for recording time that best meets their needs and constraints.
By punching in and out at a Kronos time clock.
By punching in and out by use of the Kronos web based Employee module.
When approved in advance by the Human Resources department,, or by reporting their hours to a timekeeper in their department, for entry into the Kronos system.
Unless required by the supervisor, employees not eligible for overtime under the law, the system will be exception based, only requiring the recording of leave time (vacation, sick, etc.)
Provide timely communications, training, and technical support for all new users.
