Additional Notes​

  • The FRE Program Manager is not authorized to access Dayforce for any reason under any employee's name to print out pay statements.  Imagine! encourages FREs to participate in Direct Deposit and  obtain their pay statements via the Dayforce self service website.  If the FRE is unable to obtain their pay statement via self-service, please contact the FRE Program Manager to make alternative arrangements.
  • The FRE Program Manager is not available on the days time and notes are due to trouble shoot any issues that may come up with Dayforce. Employees are expected to take time in the week prior to the due dates to get hours and contact notes into Dayforce so the FRE Program Manager can be available to address any issues that may arise.​
