Exempt Employees Leave Accrual Overstated

On December 23rd, a technical processing error caused *exempt employees’ vacation and sick leave accrual balances to be incorrectly updated in CalTime. As a result, exempt employee's leave accrual balances appear to be slightly overstated by no more than one month's’ worth of leave accruals.  The leave accrual balances are still correct in the payroll system, which is the system of record for leave accruals.

On January 26th, the leave accrual balances in CalTime will be updated to reflect the correct leave accrual balance imported from the Payroll system.  During the interim, employees that need an immediate update to their leave accrual balance can submit a ticket at http://sharedservices.berkeley.edu/.  A timekeeper will review your ticket and request a balance reset on your behalf.

We apologize for the inconvenience and are working with the technical team to prevent this issue from reoccurring.  

Thank you,

The CalTime Team
