Approve Overtime Requests

To perform this HR-related task, you must first Navigate to the HCM Self Service Homepages.

NOTE: The Approvals Tile on the Manager Self Service homepage provides access to actions requiring supervisor approval (i.e. payable time, absence requests or overtime requests).

On the Manager Self Service page, select the Approvals Tile. If you see the Employee Self Service page instead, use the drop-down menu to select Manager Self-Service. If there are pending approvals, a corresponding number will show in the bottom right corner of the Approvals tile. If there are no pending approvals, a "0" will display.
