Employees who use the Time Reporting System (TRS) are responsible for:

  • Reporting all time worked by using the TRS on a phone/PC designated by your supervisor (nonexempt employees), following the proper clocking in and out procedures.
  • Providing your supervisor with a written request for all leave
  • Adhering to university policy and departmental rules relating to time and attendance
  • Reporting promptly any discrepancies between the time you worked and your pay to your supervisor or Payroll Services


Timekeepers are responsible to be familiar with GW policies which govern hours worked, meal periods, overtime pay and premium pay for shifts, weekends, and on call, as defined in the Managers' Toolkit and any other applicable documents, including collective bargaining agreements as appropriate.  Timekeepers must also inform all employees of the importance of adhering to the university's policies and departmental practices as they relate to time worked.  In addition, timekeepers are responsible for:

  • Reviewing pay reports regularly and correcting any erroneous or missed entries on a timely basis.
  • Reviewing and approving time worked, leave time and overtime (“Work and Leave Records”) in accordance with the university's Biweekly Payroll Calendar.
  • Reviewing, approving and sending to Payroll Services any manual time sheets no later than the "Due Date" noted on the Biweekly Payroll Calendar.
  • Removing an employee’s scheduled hours from the TRS if the Change in Status (CIS) form terminating the employee has not been processed. Removal of hours helps ensure that a terminated employee will not be paid beyond the last day worked.

Managers/Supervisors can request TRS access by filling out a TRS form and taking a TRS class.
