This message is to remind you about the UMB Furlough plan and introduce you to the new Self-Service page to help you manage your furlough days. Per the memo from President Ramsay, UMB furloughs are tiered based on your annualized salary as of January 1, 2009. Annualized Salary Furlough Days Pay Periods Dates $0 - $29,999 None N/A $30,000 to $49,999 2 days (4 half days) 09-17 to 09-20 2/01 – 3/29/09 $50,000 to 69,999 3 days (6 half days) 09-17 to 09-22 2/01 – 4/25/09 $70,000 to $89,999 4 days (8 half days) 09-17 to 09-24 2/01 – 5/23/09 $90,000 and above 5 days (10 half days) 09-17 to 09-26 2/01 – 6/20/09 To assist you in tracking your furlough hours and amount obligations for each pay period, a new Self-Service Page is available. The Employee Self-Service page can be accessed through the myUMB Campus Portal. You can access the Campus Portal through the UMB home page (www.umaryland.edu) by clicking the red myUMB button in the far right-hand column: 1. Enter your UMB Employee ID into the ‘myUMBID’ field, and 2. Enter your password, and 3. Click the ‘Sign In’ button 4. Once you are logged into myUMB Campus Portal page, click the middle tab ‘My UMB Personal Info’: 5. The Self-Service ‘Furlough Schedule’ is available on this Menu Page: 6. Click the ‘Furlough Schedule’ to view your Furlough Details: A. Furlough Scheduled section for Full-time Employees- This section indicates the number of hours you are required to take off each pay period along with the amount your salary will be reduced. In the Exempt Full-time example, the employee must take off 4 hours each pay period as indicated in both the ‘Obligation Hours’ and ‘Equivalent HH:MM’ columns. 1- Furlough Scheduled section for Part-time Employees- This section indicates the number of hours you are required to take off each pay period along with the amount your salary will be reduced. In the Non-exempt Part-time example the employee must take off 3 hours and 36 minutes (‘Equivalent HH:MM’ column) each pay period which equates to 3.6 hours (‘Obligation Hours’ column). This non- exempt employee must enter 3.6 furlough hours using code FRH in the Unpaid Leave section on her timesheet. Since this employee normally works four 9-hour days, if she worked the remainder of the day then the Time In and Time Out section must indicate that she was present for 5 hours and 24 minutes- ex. Time In 8:00 AM and Time Out 1:24 PM- with the total hours worked for the day equal to 5.4. If the employee requested a full day off then 5.4 hours of leave would be used in addition to the 3.6 furlough hours on that day. If you are an exempt or faculty employee you are not required to enter the Time In and Out on your timesheets but the ‘Equivalent HH:MM’ will calculate exactly how much time you need to take off. Normally, as an exempt employee you would enter your leave in full hour increments. However, for furlough purposes, you will enter the actual furlough hours as indicated in the ‘Obligation Hours’ column. 2- Furlough Salary Reduction Taken section- This section displays the actual gross amount of salary reduction that is reflected in your bi-weekly paycheck. It is populated during each payroll processing period and you should wait until the day you get your paycheck to validate the amount that was actually taken from your paycheck. 3- Furlough Hours Taken section (not applicable for Faculty type employees)- For exempt and non-exempt employees who are required to complete bi-weekly timesheets, this section will be populated based on what you recorded on your timesheet and what was entered in the eUMB timekeeping system. Since there is a one pay period lag between when we are paid and when hours are reported, there will also be a one pay period lag for the hours displayed in this section. In this example, the hours taken for pay period #09-17 did not appear until pay period #09-18 was processed. Again, you should wait until payday to validate the hours for the previous pay period. In addition, a reminder about Furlough obligations will be posted under ‘UMB MESSAGE’ on all non exempt and exempt employee bi-weekly timesheets. If you have any questions, please contact your department payroll representative.
