  1. Jan. 15, 2019Important information: Workday time-entry

    With the transition to Workday, there have been some changes to the processes for entering time for casual employees. Because this is the first pay period going through the new processes and timelines have been tight, we wanted to let you know that there will be an off-cycle pay for anyone who missed the regular payroll cut-off deadline.
