Note: This guide is for Union crew members only.

Jump to the section relevant to you:

Received a Covid test and did not have to work

Received a Covid test on an "off day"

Received a Covid test or health screening and had to work

Received a Covid test and did not have to work

If you received a Covid test and did not have to work, select Covid Test as the “day type” in the third column. You must enter this day type on the specific day you were physically tested.

To do this, click the drop-down menu and select Covid Test or begin typing “Covid Test” to select it from the list. You can then fill out the work location, state, and city as normal.

Please note: If have selected the day type as Covid Test, DO NOT put in any hours. All of the In and Out times should be left blank on the day that you received your Covid test. Even though the total number of hours will read “0" for that day, the system knows to pay the correct rate.

Received a Covid test on an “off day” 

If you were tested on an “off day” that falls on the previous week, you must create a separate timecard for the previous week ending.  

For example, if you’re reporting to work on Monday, January 18th but you were tested on Friday, January 15 and may not have worked any other days that week, you must create a new timecard in Hours+ for the previous week ending of 01-16-2021 and select only the day that you received your Covid test. You will need to deselect all the days that are not applicable to the timecard.  

The instructions in the section above apply to the below timecard as well.

Received a Covid test or health screening and had to work 

If you received a Covid test or a health screening and had to work, you will need to mark this as a comment on the day you worked. DO NOT select Covid Test as your day type.

Select the day type that applies to your workday, fill in your hours worked, and click on the comment icon under “Actions” to notate in the comments if you had a test or health screening. Your Payroll Accountant will add the additional allowance to your timecard if applicable.
