Important Information About the Employee Online Web Portal
From Brad Isnard
The following message was sent to all staff Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure all 186 day staff are aware of the current limitations of Employee Online. It is very important that staff who need to make address or withholding changes do so before they leave for Summer Break, because they will not be able to access Employee Online from their home computers. The email sent to employees included copies of W-4 and K-4 documents and instructions to update withholding allowances manually if necessary, but in order to keep the volume of requests manageable, as many as possible must be submitted through Employee Online.
To all staff:
Some time ago, we let you know about a temporary change in the way you access Employee Online. With the end of the school year now here, the Payroll Department would like to share an update, as well as a temporary workaround for some common Employee Online tasks.
Due to a necessary security upgrade, the Employee Online system was temporarily pulled behind the District???s firewall. This limits access to the system to only those on our internal network, or that of the Public Library. We have been working closely with the TIS department and our software vendor to perform a system upgrade as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, the upgrade process will not be completed until after the 5/31 payroll date.
We know this is an inconvenience to our colleagues, especially those who will be out of their building for summer break. In an effort to make this process as smooth as possible for everyone, the Payroll Department will be mailing out paycheck stubs for all employees. If you have recently had a change of address and need to update this in the system, please do so before leaving for summer break. Similarly, if you need to make changes to your tax withholding for the 6/15/18 check, please do so before leaving for the break.
If any staff member is not able to update their withholding from their building, we have attached a copy of forms W-4 and K-4. You may fill these out and turn in to the payroll office in person, email to email@example.com, or fax to 913-551-3264.
We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and greatly appreciate your patience as our software company completes this upgrade. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reply to this email. We will send another update to all employees as soon as external access has been restored.
