UCT Payslip,
Overview
SAP HR Employee Self-Service (ESS) provides UCT staff with access to payslips and IRP5 tax certificates. Ad hoc staff, paid-on-claim staff or those paid by a temp agency will unfortunately not have access to the service due to the temporary nature of their role.
The current focus for Employee Self-Service is on automating leave processes. The online leave functionality is currently available to a number of PASS departments and one faculty. HR will launch the system to other faculties and PASS departments in the last quarter of 2018.
