At the University of the District of Columbia, all employees, except adjunct faculty, must report their own time within the DC HR System, PeopleSoft. Become familiar with what type of time reporter you are:
Positive Time Reporting
Hourly employees are positive time reporters. In order to receive the proper pay, positive time reporters record the number of hours worked each day on their time sheet. At UDC the two pay groups that are positive time reporters are G1N and G6N.
Exception Time Reporting
Faculty and Staff employees who are paid a salary are exception time reporters. Exception time reporters are paid a set amount each pay day because the payroll system automatically applies their same schedule of hours worked each pay period. When a salaried employee is absent from work, the absence is an exception to the regular schedule and must be reported on a timesheet and submitted to her/his supervisor for approval. Exception time reporters only submit a timesheet when there is an exception to report. The two pay groups that are exception time reporters are G6E and G9E.

These tutorials demonstrate positive time reporting only. Exception time is entered the same way, however exception time reporters will only enter hours on a timesheet when there is an exception to report (e.g. absences such as leave, holidays or administrative closings). If there is no exception to report there is no need to access the timesheet.
