News from the Controller's Office and the Office of Human Resources
In a continuing effort to identify and implement cost-saving initiatives across campus, the Controller's Office and the Office of Human Resources are initiating a transition to move casual employees, including Smith students working during the summer, to Web Time Entry. The college defines a casual employee as an individual who is paid by Smith and:
- works fewer than 64 hours per month, or
- works more than 64 hours per month, up to three months, or
- works part time more than three months ongoing (fewer than 17.5 hours per week) or full time up to five months.
If you manage or supervise casual employees for your department, you will be contacted to set up a transition plan to migrate those employees onto Web Time Entry.
During the transition process, existing casual employees will have assigned to them a new position control number and the Index number will no longer be used. The accounting for these individuals will not change, and there is no need to have the positions authorized again.
This transition will occur throughout the summer, and we will be working closely with each department to ensure that the necessary training is in place for both casual employees and approvers.
Please note: There will now be a separate process for hiring returning Smith students in the summer. For information on hiring a casual employee or a returning Smith student for the summer, visit the Applicant Management System page.
