Policy Statement

All payroll actions for University SHRA employees (subject to the State Personnel Act) will be processed online through ConnectCarolina by a Human Resources Representative as designated by the hiring department or unit. Payroll actions may include, but are not limited to, initial personnel information, funding source changes, and miscellaneous changes to masterfile records. All actions should be sent through the proper approval routes before rolling into Payroll.

Because ConnectCarolina HR/Payroll is the official system for all personnel actions, hiring departments and units are responsible for initiating and approving any employment actions in ConnectCarolina.

Reason for Policy

This policy establishes ConnectCarolina HR/Payroll as the official University system for capturing SHRA and EHRA (formerly EPA) Employee masterfile information; and Time Information Management (TIM) as the official time capturing system to provide to payroll interface for processing payments. Maintaining records online allows for speedier, more accurate records while maintaining proper University business standards. It also replaces paper forms, streamlining the entire employment process. All time is now captured and payment is calculated based on information provided through TIM.
