RCUH eTimesheet: March 16, 2020 launch – Project action required by February 27, 2020

TO: RCUH Principal Investigators and HR Portal Users

RCUH is pleased to announce our new eTimesheet (electronic timesheet) System! A successful pilot group of 140 employees have been reporting their time with the eTimesheet system since November 2019. All remaining RCUH projects and employees will transition to the new system in two scheduled launches:

March 16, 2020: Projects on standard work schedules who opt-in and are approved for the March deployment include:

  • Employees working a standard work schedule = 1.00 FTE working Monday through Friday for 8 hours per day
  • Or employees working consistent hours each work day, for example .50 FTE for 4 hours per day, 5 days a week
  • Non-exempt employees who work overtime are paid hourly (vs. salaried)

June 1, 2020: Projects inclusive of:

  • Employees working non-standard work schedules
  • Non-standard work schedule, for example 1.00 FTE working 10-hour days for 4 days a week or 0.50 FTE working an 8-hour, 8-hour, 4-hour schedule
  • Non-exempt employees working overtime hours who are salaried
  • All other projects who do not opt-in for the March 16th launch


If your employees are working a standard work schedule and you would like your project to transition to the RCUH eTimesheet system for the March 16-31, 2020 pay period, action is needed on your part. Please fill in the attached Project Request to Transition to eTimesheets: March 16, 2020 form and return to RCUH Human Resources by Thursday, February 27th via email at [email protected].

Once your respective projects have been confirmed for the March 16, 2020 launch, the PI and project staff with HR Portal Access to the respective DC’s will be contacted by RCUH confirming the transition on March 16, 2020 and provided additional information.
