Why do I have to prepare a time sheet?

Time sheets document the date and time an employee has worked, a paid absence such as a vacation or sick day, or an unpaid absence. Time sheets are also a record of attendance and overtime hours and are certified by the employee and supervisor, upon their signature. The State Officials and Employee Ethics Act (ILS 430) mandates that state employees periodically submit time sheets documenting the time spent each day on official state (University) business to the nearest quarter hour.
