Dec. 18-20: Special update

If you are a non-exempt employee, do not use CalTime between Dec. 18-20. Your time for this pay period should have been entered into CalTime in advance due to curtailment.

If you are working between Dec. 18-20 and did not previously notify your supervisor, please use a paper timecard and return it to your timekeeper as soon as possible.
