What's new this year

The Hire Request Form has been updated to begin collecting Lived Names instead of Legal Names. As a reminder, the Lived Name is an individual's self-chosen or personal and/or preferred professional name, based on the Gender Recognition and Lived Name Project. 

Plus, a new pay date to Session C hires; this summer, they will be paid on June 30 and August 1. 

Additional details for READERS AND TUTORS

  • Readers and Tutors that have additional jobs or appointments should review the details about the other appointment to understand what impacts there are to the frequency of how you are paid and how to report time. If you have questions about how to report time for multiple appointments, contact your supervisor or your BRS regional HR Service Team. 
  • Once you begin using CalTime, you (and your supervisor) will begin receiving recurring email reminders to complete (and approve) timesheets by the deadlines for each pay period.  


  • If you are a Summer Sessions GSI with an additional Student Assistant appointment, your GSI appointment may be subject to a non-exempt FLSA status, requiring you to report time on a biweekly basis. You can do this by submitting your hours on a manual bi-weekly timesheet and following these manual timesheet (submission) instructions.  
  • It is important to know that manual timesheets must be completed, signed, and approved, then submitted to BRS one (1) day prior to the Employee Approval date that is shown on the CalTime Bi-weekly Payroll Deadlines schedule. This is to allow BRS time to enter the timesheet prior to the CalTime due date.
