Administrative Processes

On July 1, 2015, Workday became our system of record for human resources and payroll as well as all faculty appointment and compensation information.  In place of entering faculty appointment and compensation information onto forms to be sent to the Office of Faculty Administrative Services (OFAS), you will enter this information directly into Workday.  NOTE:  For all transactions involving compensation you must complete the Charging Instructions for Faculty Compensation form and send this to OFAS.  This form is used to obtain the necessary approvals from the Provost’s Office as well as to provide us with the charging instructions (labor scheduling).

If you wish, you may continue to use the forms below as worksheets for gathering the information that you need to enter into Workday.  Please do not send these forms to OFAS.  For each form below, the name of the guide for completing the Workday process is included.  All of the Workday guides are on the Workday@Yale training site.

General guidelines:

  • The deadline for submitting compensation information for a given month is the 9th of the month for FAS and the 15th of the month for all other schools in order for the change to be included in that month’s payroll.  Forms that are not completed properly may result in a delay of being processed.
  • If the compensation is for a faculty member who is not in your supervisory organization, you will need to send the form to the supervisory organization for entry into Workday.  NOTE:  If the faculty member is being given a secondary appointment in your department, you will need to enter only the academic appointment into Workday. 
  • Submit all supporting documentation to as a complete packet.  Use the following format for the subject line:
    • Faculty Member Last Name, First Name, Transaction Type, Effective Date (mm/dd/yy)
      • ​Example:  Smith, John, Reappointment, 7/1/16
  • ​Enter the transaction into Workday after sending all documentation to  It would be helpful to OFAS staff if you include the Salesforce case # in the comments section of the transaction.
