Human Resources System Outage February 22 until February 27 Will Affect Employee Access

Employees will not have access to their online timesheet, earnings statements and other related documents and services during a UW Human Resources System (HRS) outage that began at noon February 22, 2017. The outage is due to an HRS System technical upgrade and is scheduled to continue until Monday, February 27. 

The following self-service features that employees access through the MyUW portals, UW System institutions and UW-Madison, will be unavailable during the outage:

  • Online timesheet
  • Absence reporting
  • Benefits Self-service (‘e-Benefits’)
  • Updates to personal information
  • Access to electronic earnings statements, tax statements (W-2, 1042-S, etc.), leave statements and other HR, Payroll and Benefits documents.

The rest of the portal, with the exception of the HRS System related features and documents, will be available during the HRS outage.

Once the HRS System is upgraded, employees will experience the same functionality that they are currently accustomed to. The upgrade will have minimal impact on system users.

The HRS System manages UW Human Resources, Payroll and Benefits processing for all UW System institutions.  The system is currently running on PeopleSoft’s Human Capital Management software version 9.0. The upgrade will move the system to version 9.2.
