Employees are automatically imported as they are added to Banner. We get nightly updates from Banner. So if you have a new employee that is in Banner on a Monday afternoon, then he/she should be imported into TigerTime by Tuesday morning.
Card-swipe Terminals - swipe a AU Banner ID card at a smart terminal
Web-enabled Timestamp - log into a TigerTime url with your AU GID and password
A custom payroll interface extracts the data from timecards and creates a comma delimited text file. The text file is imported into Banner.
Holidays are added to the system as soon as the schedule is published. For those employees that are eligible for holiday pay, the system is configured to pay set amounts based on your FTE. If you work on that holiday, punches will be captured as separate line items. It is important to remember that just because you work on a holiday, does not mean those hours are automatically calculated as overtime (@ 1.5).
Overtime is determined on a weekly, not daily, basis. You must work more than 40 hours a week before overtime is calculated.
Holidays will not appear in the timecard until the current pay period.
For any part-time leave eligible employees, the holidays are not automatically added to the system. It is the responsibility of the manger or timekeeper to enter PTB and the number of hours based on their work schedule.
This is a managerial issue and should be handled within the department. Payroll is primarily concerned that all employees of the university are paid timely, accurately and efficiently.
For all full-time non-exempt employees, a total of 80 hours are generally expected (40 hours per week).
Vacation and sick leave are accrued based on a 40-hour work week. If you work less than 40 hours per week, your accruals will be reduced.
Non-exempt yearly salary is broken into 26 payments per year based on a 40-hour work week. If you work less than 40 hours per week, your pay will be reduced.
Yes, you could... But, that would be tracked in the audit trail and is highly unethical. TigerTime has an extremely detailed audit trail. Any changes that are made within the timecard are tracked.
Accruals listed in TigerTime are typically more up-to-date than Banner, however, Banner is the official record keeping system.
Leave balances can be checked at any terminal. Balances will be refreshed approximately every four hours.
No. All leave eligible employees will request leave through TigerTime. Requests will be routed to a supervisor. The supervisor has the ability to approve or deny requests. If approved, the leave is automatically entered onto your timecard.
Paper timecards are also not needed. All data will be stored electronically.
All employees being paid by Auburn University. This includes, but is not limited to:
Auburn University Montgomery
Alabama Cooperative Extension System
Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station
Employees working off-campus with no access to PCs or terminals may need to report time to their managers. Managers will be able to key punches into TigerTime.
Employees are required to report all hours worked. For example, if an employee is needed for an after hours event, then he or she is required to include those hours in the weekly total.
According to AU policy, overtime is to be approved in advance. However, according to FSLA, Auburn University is required to compensate employees for ALL hours worked.
Departments have the choice to either compensate the employee by paying overtime or allowing the employee to leave early/arrive late at the end of the week.
If an employee works hours in excess of 40 hours, and the overtime is not approved, Auburn University is still required to compensate that employee for all time worked. However, the department/manager may choose to use disciplinary actions, if overtime is worked without prior approval.
TigerTime has the ability to create unique shifts and schedules.
FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) requires Auburn University to collect timecards for all hourly employees.
Non-exempt employees must swipe in and out for payroll purposes.
Non-exempt employees will swipe in and out at smart terminals located near their work area or via a computer timestamp.
The time clock or smart terminal will provide visual and auditory signals in the form of a green light and beep as each swipe is successfully made.
If you forget to clock in, notify your supervisor and he/she will insert your time on the timesheet.
These activities are prescheduled and will have prior approval from your supervisor. That being the case, employee time sheets will need to be appropriately updated by a supervisor/manager to reflect the time taken for training.
Swipe-in and out each time you come and go. If you leave and return once during the day (lunch), then your timecard will contain four entries.
In the event of a power failure, the time clocks come with a battery back-up that will save punches. Once power has been restored, the swipes made at each timeclock will be uploaded to the TigerTime system.
Yes, with some exceptions for biometric employees.
Yes, full-time employees will have the ability to clock at both a computer and a smart terminal. Students will be primarily restricted to the smart terminals. Employees may choose to clock via a smart terminal because of the ease of use and speed.
TigerTime helps organizations automate the process of collecting time and attendance information and calculating employee pay. TigerTime is a web-based technology that provides multiple access points for employees and supervisors.
A number of back-up/redundant technical systems will help to decrease that possibility, however, should it ever occur, payroll has procedures in place to ensure employees will get paid.
No. Employees will be able to review their own hours worked at the timeclock. If an employee would like a printout of their timesheet, their supervisor will be able to print a hard copy.
Yes. It is recommended for supervisors to review timecards each day. This process takes a few seconds to a minute depending on your department.
No. The TigerTime timeclocks are part of a stand-alone system and are not connected to any other devices.
All punch times are rounded on quarter of an hour increments. Time is rounded based on a standard "7 minute rule." For example, if you clock in at 8:07 a.m., then punch time is rounded to 8 a.m. If you clock in at 8:08 a.m., the punch time is rounded to 8:15 a.m. Time is rounded forwards and backwards.
00 (Top of the Hour) i.e. 8 a.m.
15 (Hour + 1/4) i.e. 8:15 a.m.
30 (Hour + 1/2) i.e. 8:30 a.m.
45 (Hour + 3/4) i.e. 8:45 a.m.
Yes. Supervisors approve time worked for their own employees via an electronic signature in TigerTime.
Smart terminals are located at convenient locations around campus. Heavily populated buildings may contain additional terminals. A map on the TigerTime web site denotes locations.
Yes. Once approved by your supervisor, leave time will automatically populate onto your timecard. Time will not be sent to Banner until the current pay period. The system will immediately notify you if the leave request is greater than the leave balance.
