Definition

This Pay, Title, FTE Change (SALRAT) guide for EPAF approvers applies to approving the modifications to any of the fields of an employee’s assignment, such as Annual Salary, Regular Rate, Title, or FTE. Please refer to the Employee Adjustment (ADJUST) guide for EPAF approvers for approving retroactive modifications (i.e. for a previous pay period). For all EPAF guides, refer to the Information for EPAF Users web page.

Deadlines

Generally, EPAFs must be submitted about two weeks before the end of a pay period. Adhere to the EPAF Approval Deadline column of Payroll's Pay Schedule table to ensure timely and accurate payroll for employees. EPAFs submitted after the deadline will be paid on the next available pay period. For a special check request, please contact Payroll.
