Earn types

These pages display the earnings types that are used in the UW payroll system. Earnings types are used by UW Payroll and are generally initiated at the department level through the Online Payroll Update System (OPUS) or by use of the ETR (Exception Time Report) or the PTR (Positive Time Report). Contact the Compensation or your unit’s Human Resources Operations Office with questions about the use of earnings types.

The earnings tables will help you know:

  • When to use a specific earnings type;
  • How to calculate each earnings type;
  • Which employee groups are eligible to use specific earnings types; and
  • What form to use for submitting the hours for payment of each earnings type.
