City employees successfully updated our human resources and financial software systems to launch COMET last week. Here are the latest tips on the tool since it went live.
The COMET log-in screen allows separate access to both the human resources and financial software systems. Your password for the human resources system is the same as it was in HRIS, and your password for the financial system is the same as it was in COMPASS. Enter the correct user ID and password depending on which system you want to access, then click the corresponding HR or finance button. (Note: Most employees only use the HR system and do not have access to the finance system.)
The new system generates PDF paychecks that you may view and print in COMET. The first one will be available Sept. 18. That will be the first paycheck generated completely by the new system.
Past paychecks are available in the system now. The past paychecks will look different than the PDF paychecks and also look different than they used to in HRIS; the information shown on the paychecks is how the system delivers it.
