Employee Online FAQs

How do I request an account?

If you are a full time faculty member, staff member, or administrator with a Union email address, you will automatically be provided with access to Employee Online. If you do not have a Union email address, you will need to request access to Employee Online by filling out Employee Online Opt In Form and the Acceptable Use Policy Agreement.

What is my username and password?

Your Employee Online username and password is the same username and password you use to access your Union email and log into your office computer.  Please note:  Beginning on October 31, 2016, your username must have "union\" in front of it.  i.e. union\smithj

What internet browsers are supported with Employee Online?

Our software vendor, SungardPS, states the following browsers are supported:Internet Explorer 7 & 8, Firefox 2.0 & 3.0 and Safari 2.0 & 3.0 (Mac only). We have determined that EO does not work well with Firefox 5.01 and 6.x, specifically, the paystub does not display properly..

Is Employee Online secure?

The Employee Online site is a secure SSL website meaning that the data passed to and from the site is encrypted. In addition, if you are accessing the system on campus via a wire, it is double-encrypted. To prevent others from accessing your account, your Employee Online session will timeout in 30 minutes and, because the system uses your standard Union password, your password will have to meet the complexity requirements defined by the Information Technology Services department. As a reminder, never share your password with others.
