ePAR (electronic personnel action request) is a function in LOUIE that allows for paperless employment transactions such as hiring an employee, job or pay changes, and end of employment. A department initiator initiates the appropriate form for a specific transaction which is then electronically approved as it moves through the approval process.
The ePAR will be used for employment transactions for all the following employee groups: faculty, administrative faculty, academic professionals, administrators, service professionals, classified staff, temporaries (hourly and salaried), graduate assistants, and student workers.
Provides information on the general work flow, types of eforms used and the different user roles.
Both Initiator and Approver navigation guides are provided for all the key actions in ePAR. Brief, specific transaction guides are also provided for initiators.
Approval Routing: General description of the approval/notification path for the different employee transactions. Prior to a department's 'go live', HR will work with the department to clarify who will fill those roles.
Salary Calculator: Provides help with calculating appropriate salary totals and salary changes
