(Oct. 19, 2012) -- UTSA will convert its financial and HR systems to PeopleSoft in spring 2013. In anticipation of the PeopleSoft implementation, the Office of Human Resources announces two major business changes in the standard workweek and Family and Medical Leave Act counting method.

Standard workweek: UTSA will change its current workweek (Sunday through Saturday) to Monday through Sunday effective Monday, Nov. 26, 2012. Employees scheduled to work on Sunday, Nov. 25, 2012, will include their hours worked with those recorded during the previous week (Sunday, Nov. 18 through Sunday, Nov. 25, 2012), resulting in a one-time eight-day workweek instead of seven.

Human Resources will send in an email next week additional information regarding updated time sheets, available from the Payroll department website, and electronic time sheets.

For questions regarding the change of the workweek, contact Employee Relations at 210-458-7891.

FMLA counting method: The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides eligible employees with 12 workweeks of qualifying leave within a 12-month period. Effective Jan. 1, 2013, UTSA's method for calculating the 12-month period will change to a "rolling" 12-month period measured backward from the date an employee first uses any FMLA leave.

This announcement fulfills the requirement to provide 60 days' notice of the change to all employees. During the transition period, employees taking FMLA between now and Dec. 31, 2012, will do so under whichever method yields the greatest benefit to the employees.

For questions regarding changes to the FMLA, contact HR Leave Management at 210-458-6647, or for more information and examples of the new method, download the document Employee Notice -- October 19, 2012.

 

 

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
