HR/Payroll Applications

Time Reporting System (TRS)

A Web-based time reporting system designed to collect employee work hours and supervisor’s approval.

The TRS application interfaces with the payroll system to get employees paid accurately on time.

It utilizes the UC time and attendance business rules to capture all hour types including work hours, vacation, sick, comp time used, leave without pay (LWOP), voting, and jury duty. TRS also computes overtime, shift differential, and holiday pay. It then uploads information to the Payroll Personnel System (PPS) for payment processing. TRS is one of the widely used time reporting systems by the departments at UCLA.
