HR Announcements

Modified: December 8, 2016

myHR Coming December 12!

The Faculty and Staff Information System (FASIS), the University's Human Resources (HR) portal, will be upgraded next week offering a refreshed, streamlined experience to manage all of your HR needs. FASIS will be renamed "myHR," aptly describing the simplified, user-friendly interface that enables you to conduct your HR business when you want and from any device. Featuring more intuitive navigation and key technical enhancements, myHR will be your destination for all things HR, from executing your personal HR activities to facilitating the recruiting process.  For more information, including details about system enhancements, demonstrations, and more, see the FASIS Upgrade to myHR web page.

Update Your Address for W-2 Mailing

Please visit the FASIS Self Service Portal ("myHR" as of December 12th) to review and update (as needed) your current home address.  This address will be used for the delivery of your printed 2016 Form W-2.  If you manage temporary employees or student employees, please ensure their addresses are reviewed and updated in FASIS as well.

W-4 Reminder for Postdocs, including NIH NRSA Postdocs

Please remember to submit a new Form W-4 to the HR Operations/Payroll Office if your marital status or allowances have changed in 2016 or will change for 2017.  Additionally, for postdocs funded by a fellowship, such as an NRSA training grant or individual fellowship, the stipend is taxable income that is not automatically withheld. You must complete and submit state and federal W-4 forms to Payroll to have taxes withheld. You can submit a new federal and/or state Form W-4 any time throughout the year.  Forms W-4 can be downloaded from the Payroll website and mailed to or dropped off at the HR Operations/Payroll Office on the Chicago and Evanston campuses.

Early Kronos Deadline for December

Please keep in mind that the December time entry deadlines for non-exempt staff, as well as manager approvals, will be early this month due to the holidays. Employees and managers taking time off at the end of December are urged to complete their Kronos entry/approval process prior to leaving campus. More information regarding the early deadlines will be sent to employees as the end of the month approaches.
