Important Notice for TCD Approvers
Timesheets for TCD employees display excessive hours when shifts are partially approved (a shift where the employee has punched in, but not out, for the day). If the punch total for a shift displays excessive hours, the employee will not be paid for that shift. To prevent this, Time Approvers should not partially approve a shift for an employee. If excessive or incorrect hours appear in the Punch Total field, Time Approvers must press submit and reapprove the entire shift. For assistance, contact the Employee Service Center at 617-979-8500.
