TRS Adds Support for COVID-19 Paid Leave

Sent to the TRS-Update mailing list on March 18, 2020

Drop down showing COVID-19 Leave USage optionThe Time Reporting System (TRS) was recently updated to allow employees to report paid leave hours related to COVID-19. UCI Human Resources is providing information on when it is appropriate for employees to use COVID-19 paid leave.

To report paid leave related to the current public health emergency, employees should select the “Paid Leave (COVID19)” code from the “Add” drop-down menu in TRS. The same code is used for both exempt and non-exempt employees. All paid leave should be approved by an employee’s supervisor. For more information on when it appropriate to use COVID-19 paid leave, please see the guidance posted in the Leave section of the UCI HR Coronavirus webpage.

Early DTA Deadline Next Week

Department Time Administrators (DTAs) should be aware that next week’s biweekly deadline for DTAs is Monday, March 23 – a day earlier than usual. The early deadline is related to the Cesar Chavez Day holiday and UCPath’s processing schedule. The deadline for employees is unchanged. See the TRS Deadlines page for more information.
