What if my hours are not approved by the employer on time to receive my pay? What happens if my hours are rejected by the employer?
Drake has built in failsafe methods to ensure that no pay cheque is missed, if you submit your hours on time and accurately. On a weekly basis, Drake runs reports to verify that all worked time is submitted and approved, on time, to meet internal payroll deadlines.
If your hours recorded are rejected by your employer or Drake Representative, they will record a note as to why and you will receive this via email. If you receive a rejection email, you must immediately go back to the Avionté portal and adjust your hours and resubmit these hours for approval again. It is your personal responsibility to ensure that your hours are accurately submitted and submitted within the deadlines that your Drake branch has given you. If you make a mistake and the hours are rejected, or you submit your hours late, there is a possibility that your payroll cannot be completed on time.
How will I know when to enter my hours online?
Drake best practice is that you submit your hours in the Drake Avionté portal daily and save the timesheet. Once you have worked your last day in that week, you should add those hours and then submit that timesheet for approval. Please ensure that you are submitting on time or you may experience a delay in your payroll.
What if I enter the hours and then realize I made a mistake?
If you recognize that you have made a mistake on your hours, and you have not “submitted” your hours yet for approval, you can still adjust your hours.
If you have submitted your hours for approval and then you have recognized you have made a mistake, but your hours have not yet been approved, you can still go into Avionté and adjust and resubmit these hours.
If you have received an approval for your hours that were incorrect, you should immediately contact your Drake Representative.
