FYI: Things Worth Knowing
Look for brief updates about projects, activities, the division and institution in this section.
F&O Event Email Schedule Change for Summer
F&O updates will be provided at least once a month. Look for regular weekly emails to pick up again in September.
Time and Labor and Absence Management (TLAB) Went Live June 1
The TLAB modules will replace the paper copies of salaried leave and overtime forms (absence management) and hourly reporting forms (time and labor). Employees will submit leave requests and hourly employees will be able to clock in by logging into PeopleSoft via computer, smartphone, or tablet.
Important TLAB reminders:
- For earnings dates starting with June 1 going forward you will no longer be submitting salaried leave and overtime forms or hourly reporting forms to report time or absences. Paper forms will no longer be accepted (Any leave taken or hours earned prior to June 1 should still be on the paper forms).
- Submit any leave taken on the paper forms for leave already taken between January 1 May 31 as soon as possible to ensure accurate balances are transferred to the TLAB system.
- You can find presentations and manuals at http://und.edu/finance-operations/human-resources-payroll/managers-toolbox/tlab.cfm. Department admins and managers/supervisors are expected to train their employees on this information prior to the June 1 go-live date.
- The first pay period employees may notice right away that their leave balances are zero in TLAB. Those balances will appear around June 13.
- Kronos will no longer be available for employees to punch in starting June 1. Instead, all hourly employees will punch in by using the web clock in PeopleSoft. Exceptions to this would be:
- Employees working in Facilities, Aerospace, or EERC who have a load
- Employees that work for departments that have purchased a new time clock where the employee would use a time clock in place of the web clock

Across the Division
Each month a different unit within the division will be featured. Learn about the goings-on within finance and operations. This month, an update from public safety.

UND’s Department of Public Safety is located in the safety/police building and consists of University Police Department (UPD), Environmental Health & Safety (chemical, biological, fire, radiation), Risk Management & Insurance, Workers' Compensation/Ergonomics, and Emergency Management/Operations Center.

Premier One also allows every officer day-to-day access to a state wide data base.

In the Industry: Articles
With busy schedules it can be challenging to find quality articles that can help us with the work we do, so we've done the research for you. A new article will be selected each week to help manage productivity and stress related to workload. You are encouraged to use these resources to find ways to work smarter (not harder) and to help solve bigger problems.
Years of Service Honorees
UND honored staff members for years of service May 9 at the annual staff recognition luncheon. Honorees received certificates for years of service.
Kuntz passes American Payroll Association CPP exam
Kevin Kuntz, tax specialist, passed the American Payroll Association's Certified Payroll Professional exam in April.
Once considered a technical skill, payroll has become a professional discipline. Payroll professionals are knowledgeable in all aspects of payroll, stay abreast of changes in related technologies, and, through independent research, keep current with the legislative and regulatory environment. A payroll professional must be proficient in all aspects of taxation and tax reporting, MIS, human resources, and accounting as each of these relate to the payroll environment. Today’s payroll professionals function as members of a management team. The APA offers the Certified Payroll Professional (CPP) Mastery Examination to recognize those who have achieved this level of professional proficiency.
The Division of Finance and Operations welcomes its newest employees to campus. Show your support for these new team members by encouraging them to engage in UND's culture and provide a superior experience and environment for our students, colleagues and communities.
No new employees were hired within the division during the month of April.
