How To: Enter Adjust Paid Time in Axess Timecard

Who does this?  Time & Leave Administrators and Supervisors

When?  An employee did not make a time and/or leave entry in a previous pay period or if an entry was incorrect. Axess Timecard is the system of record for all employee time and leave. Entering an Adjust Paid Time entry ensures that the employee's record is accurate and complete. It also updates the employee's leave accrual balances, as appropriate. Adjust Paid Time entries must always be entered when an error is discovered.

How?  Using the Axess Timecard time and leave reporting system. Learn about getting access to Axess Timecard.

What Happens Next?

  • An Adjust Paid Time entry will not alter an employee's pay.
  • If the Adjust Paid Time entry involves entry of Vacation or Disability Sick earnings, an accounting adjustment will occur automatically. This entry will correct the allocation of earnings between the department PTA(s) and the appropriate central account. The adjusting entry will appear on the Expenditure Statement for the month in which the Adjust Paid Time entry was entered.
