Remember, you must enter time on HOLIDAY's if you want to get paid. You are contractually to receive pay for Holiday's as listed in your contract. You will not automatically get paid for holiday's unless you enter it. If you are having difficulties, keep pressing enter, it will take it.

Also, don't ignore emails that say your time has not been approved. The most likely reason is a comment wasn't entered for extended time, or I may not have gotten to it on Tuesday, or you entered it after noon on Tuesday. Before you ask what hasn't been approved, check it first.

Here is a link on how to do that.
