The new hiring system, PeopleAdmin, is almost here and we wanted to remind you of the changes that are taking place before the new system is live on July 1st.
NeoGov is no longer being utilized for new searches. If you have a position that needs to be searched prior to July 1st when the new system goes live, please contact 8566.

Per University policy (see below), hourly employees should utilize any accrued compensatory time prior to July 1st. Please log into Firefly>Employee Self Service>Leave Information to review your current balance and submit your leave request(s) accordingly.
Employees who request to use earned compensatory time shall be permitted to use such time within a reasonable period after making such a request if the use of the compensatory time does not unduly disrupt the operation of the department. Employees shall not accumulate more than 60 hours of compensatory time. To insure that compensatory time is used within a reasonable time, compensatory balances should be used by June 30th of each year unless permission is granted by the Human Resources Office to carry a balance beyond that date.
Please contact Human Resources at (308) 865-8426 with any questions.
