CU Time Regular Earnings Template


Use this template to upload regular earnings using regular earnings codes. NOTE: Although the templates for Regular Earnings and One-Time Payments are the same, do not enter regular earnings and one time (additional pay) earnings codes on the same file because the navigation in HCM to upload them are different.

Download this template below.

Notes on what we've updated

  • Use the corresponding earnings dates according to the active status, paygroup and position of the individual employee. If an employee terms, transfers or changes positions in the middle of a pay period, the earnings dates must match for what is being paid.
  • If you're manually entering time, you can create a row by entering earnings dates, department, and employee number and record. If the department and employee record don't match, a prompt will ask you to fix the error.
  • The record default is 99 on all entries because the record needs to be actively selected.  The default of record 0 created too many errors where pay was intended for another record, but was processed on record 0.

Other tips on using this form

    • Earning end date (Earn End)—Using format MM/DD/YYYY, enter the earnings end date.
