Frequently Asked Questions - HCM Specific

Will the new system have warnings/notifications that highlight upcoming leave end dates?

No. UCPath will not generate automatic warnings to highlight upcoming leave end dates. However, UCPath will provide reports that identify upcoming leave end dates for a given department or organizational unit.

Will we have an online system of record, and thus eliminate the need for paper personnel files?

Although UCPath will be the online system of record for HR and payroll data transactions, current local systems and paper personnel files will be retained for data that is not migrated to UCPath.

Will we need to request a new position number before any recruitment is conducted?

Not necessarily. If the recruitment is for a staff position for an existing vacant position, the same position number can be used. Otherwise a new position number will have to be created.   

Is UCPath going to include timekeeping?

UC Berkeley will continue to use CalTime and will develop interfaces to UCPath throughout the initial phase of UCPath rollout. These interfaces will pass timekeeping data to UCPath for payroll and leave calculations.
