HR Upgrade 9/16 to 9/19

This coming weekend the HR system will be upgraded.  Human Resources, Self-Service Human Resources, Time Clocks (Telnet), Web Timeclocks will be unavailable Friday, 9/16 6:00am until Monday 9/19 8:00am.  This is a very complicated upgrade requiring, in addition to the upgrade itself, the application of several patches and scripts.  The timing of this upgrade is critical as it must be done to accommodate other upgrades and projects that are planned and dependent on this upgrade.  We anticipate all of the work will take from 60 – 65 Hrs. total which necessitates our taking the system all day on Friday as well as the weekend.  Please review the “impact to users” section below as the upgrade does require some changes to your desktop settings and browser use.  We apologize for the inconvenience and have a detailed plan in place to make this go as fast and efficiently as possible.
