Civilian Managers: Approving Employee Payable Time

July 9, 2020 - Defence Stories

As a section 34 manager, it’s your responsibility to check for pending approvals for employee time and to approve them in a timely manner in order for employees to be paid accurately and on time. This means that you must complete reviews and approvals within the Phoenix pay system cut off dates of each individual pay cycle. This cut-off is typically the Monday of a non-pay week.

It’s critical that managers check for pending approvals within Phoenix on a regular basis. Delayed approvals result in delayed payments and, in some cases, will trigger problems in Phoenix. Section 34 managers are therefore encouraged to set a reminder to check for pending approvals on the Friday of each pay week.

Finally, if time is not entered and/or approved within 6 months of its occurrence, the transaction cannot be processed through Phoenix and the Section 34 manager will have to submit a PAR for processing through the Human Resources Services and Support (link accessible only on the National Defence network).
