Annual Access Review: myHR

The myHR Annual Administrative Access Review is performed online by supervisors with employees who have administrative access to myHR. Its purpose is to ensure that assigned user access is appropriate and current. The review is only for administrative access to myHR and does not include self-service, recruiting, or manager functions.

Review Timeline

The annual security access review begins each June. All reviewers must submit their access confirmations by close of business on August 15.

Please respond by the August 15 deadline to avoid temporary loss of user access.
