Clocking Your Time

  • All exempt employees, please use web clocking.
  • All non-exempt/hourly employees, if you’ve been approved to work from home, clock your time via phone. 
  • If you forget to clock your time, notify your supervisor and timekeeper as soon as possible. 

Computers and Laptops

  • Ensure your computer is up to date with the latest security software. 
  • While there is no requirement on internet speed for connecting to EHC’s network, for optimal use, your internet bandwidth should be higher than 2mbps.
  • For access to your data and applications and a variety of Emory resources (e-Vantage, Emory Box, etc.), you must authenticate through DUO.
    • If you are prompted to enter DUO credentials and you do not have a DUO account, call 8-HELP (404-778-4357) to be set up with an account.
