Input Time Worked in Self Service Time Entry

The two week pay period begins on Sunday at 12:00 am and ends 14 days later on Saturday at 11:59 pm. All employee time must be entered by 9:00 am on the Monday after the end of the pay period, and supervisors must approve time entered by 12:00 noon on the Monday after the end of the pay period.
