Managing Temps

Managing Temporary Employees in myHR

Supervisors and/or department administrators with approved system access may use myHR to manage their temporary employee job records, including:

  • Work-Study Students
  • Temporary (non-work-study) Students
  • Temporary Non-Students

Once a temp is hired, the myHR Temp Panel may be used to:

  • Update your employee's salary, including quarterly work-study increases
  • Change your temp's Kronos timecard approver (and backup approvers)
  • Update a work-study student's Job Title
  • Change a work-study student to a non-work-study (or vice versa)
  • Temporarily or permanently update the chartstring charged for your temp's payroll
  • Terminate temp jobs when the employee is finished working for you
