An update for employees about timekeeping during the Kronos outage

Dec. 16, 2021, 8:22 AM

Dear Colleague, 

As a result of the worldwide Kronos (timekeeping system) outage, VUMC has been working to ensure our employees continue to be paid in a timely and accurate manner.  

As a VUMC staff member, here is what you need to know:  

  • Managers and timekeepers are working together to gather time for each of their staff members. Please follow your departmental procedures for providing your time to your manager. 
  • Managers and timekeepers for most areas will have until noon, Sunday, Dec. 19, 2021, to enter all time data for non-exempt (hourly) employees so you may be asked to verify some information earlier than usual.  
  • Leaders of union non-exempt (hourly) employees will have until 9 a.m., Monday, Dec. 20, 2021, to enter all time data for their employees. 

There is no action you need to take other than to ensure your manager has all your time captured prior to the payroll deadlines above. We encourage you to submit this information to your timekeeping team as quickly as you can.  

We appreciate your patience as we work together through this unprecedented issue.  

Further updates on the Kronos outage and a restart timetable will be provided as we learn more. In the meantime, should you have questions or concerns, please contact your VUMC manager.

Thank you,
