1. BUDGET TRANSFERS IN WFS
The deadline for original budget transfers is Wednesday, March 15. It is important that we freeze the 2023 original budgets for 2024 budget planning. Adjustment budget transfers will still be allowed in the last quarter of the fiscal year, but there should be very little budget transfer activity from this point forward. As a reminder, budget transfer training materials can be found on the Finance website at http://www.wesleyan.edu/finance/traininglist.html. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
2. SUMMER HOURS
All employees eligible for summer hours should use Workforce Time to record time off for summer hours through the Time Off Request feature in Workforce Time or by entering summer hours used directly on ‘My Timesheet’ in Workforce Time. Summer Hours will be added to each eligible employee’s Summer Hours bank in Workforce Time effective June 5th. The time will be loaded on Friday, March 10th so it will be available for use on Time Off Requests during the summer hour period. You can find a quick, three minute video on how to report summer hours in Workforce Time using the Time Off Request Function in WesPortal.
3. MINIMUM WAGE
The Connecticut state minimum wage will increase from $14.00 per hour to $15.00 per hour on June 1, 2023. Please plan accordingly for budgeting and hiring students for summer positions.
