Employee Self Service allows you to view leave balances, payslips and other payroll information as well as submit leave requests, Commencing Professional Development Review (CPDR), Professional Development Review (PDR) and Performance Appraisal Report (PAR) to your supervisor.
Human Resources records your email address for use by the Web Self-Service (ESS) system. Your email address will also be supplied to other systems such as the UWA online directory.
One ESS feature allows you to request your password via email (after establishing your identity) if you have forgotten it. Only legitimate and personally identifiable UWA email addresses can be used.
Your first password is based on your date of birth using the format ddmmyy. When you log in for the first time, you will be required to change your password, which must be between eight and 15 characters and have A-Z characters and at least one numeric character. The passwords are case sensitive.
Set yourself a secret question and answer at the same time so you can retrieve your password if you forget it.
If the ESS is unable to generate a password, or if you have forgotten the answer to your question, contact your HR Employment Team member.
You should ensure that all passwords remain secure and confidential. Passwords must not be shared within work environments.
The Employee Self Service User Guide provides guidance and help on using ESS:
HR Systems supports and recommends the use of Internet Explorer version 6.x (or higher) and Mozilla Firefox version 2.x (or higher). HR Systems acknowledges the use of other browser software with the University; however, it only supports Internet Explorer.
The ESS is best viewed with a desktop resolution of 1024 x 768.
Recent browsers have the ability to store field entries. For security reasons we would recommend that this feature be disabled.
If you need help with your browser settings, contact the computer support person for your department. If you are using Internet Explorer, and need additional assistance, please call the HR HelpDesk on ext 7896.
