As Needed Effort Certification Report

Overview

The As Needed Effort Certification Report is a work-around for employees who are terminating employment, going on long-term disability, beginning a leave of absence or reduction in force, AND:

  • need to certify their effort for the current period, OR
  • need to re-certify their effort for a period that they previously certified on an As Needed Effort Certification Report. Active employees should recertify online.

Important Information

  • You must have the HR APPT VIEWER role to run the As Needed Effort Certification Report.
  • Using the Termination Checklist is strongly encouraged.
  • Run a separate As Needed Effort Certification Report for each certification period.
  • Make sure that you submit As Needed Effort Certification Reports for retired employees or those on long-term disability. Run the Effort Certification Status Report for Administrative Department 677440, which includes only these individuals, and scan for names under your effort reporting management.
  • If an employee's termination date changes after submitting an As Needed Effort Certification Report, the unit must submit a revised report.
