Financial and administrative services implements new time-keeping policy

By Iliana Ricelli, Associate Vice President for Human Resources

The financial and administrative services division has implemented a new time-keeping policy in accordance with the established system-wide policies and guidelines of the Tennessee Board of Regents. This policy is intended to promote the efficient processing of payroll and comply with applicable federal, state and local wage and hour laws. Accurate and timely recording and reporting of time worked is essential to all employees and for the college to remain in compliance with the numerous laws and regulations that govern how Southwest conducts business. Timekeeping records constitute the basis for payment of wages and college-authorized paid leave practices (annual, sick, or compensatory leaves).

This policy applies to all employees (e.g. full-time, part-time, and temporary) for the recording and reporting of college-authorized paid leave and to non-exempt employees for the recording and reporting of actual hours worked.

Please review this policy and keep a copy for your files. If you have any questions or concerns, contact the Office of Human Resources at 901-333-5340 or at
