Frequently Asked Questions about Systems and Employee Transactions

Hire iJANs: use the lowest record number available.  The department on record zero (0) will determine the employee’s access. The employee’s primary job should be on record zero.

Change iJANs: select the record with your department number linked to it if you are making changes to a current employee.

If you aren’t sure, call the HR Service Center at 315.443.4042 for assistance.

Refer to the payroll calendar to determine the due date.  All iJANs submitted after the due date will be rejected and must be resubmitted (you may need to adjust the chart string before resubmitting).  To issue corrected pay to the employee, complete a Request for Additional Pay (RAP) form, or to correct the account charged, complete a Payroll Reallocation (PAR) form for time worked during the period before the iJAN will take effect.  Unfortunately, chart strings cannot be back dated.
