DPW Storm Tracking


During an event of a storm, it is important to code your timesheets to the accurate code so in the case of potential reimbursement, we can easily track everyone's time.

Typically, when filling out your timesheets, you don't fill in any codes if you are documenting regular time. However, in the case of a storm please use the following storm codes in your timesheets:

If you are a regular full-time employee:

  • Regular pay: 10strm
  • Overtime earned: 21strm
  • Comp time earned: 46strm
Full-time employees example timesheet for storms
If you are a fixed-term employee:

  • Regular pay: 81strm
  • Overtime earned: 21strm

If you are a temp employee:

  • Overtime earned: 21strm

Please note: Do not use any FEMA codes (any timecode ending in "fema")
