HRMS access

Basic HRMS access (self-service and approver)

Basic HRMS access is usually provisioned automatically and no special action is required. This includes:

  • Access to Faculty and Staff Self-Service to update contact information, review and print pay stubs and tax slips, create and monitor job applications, etc.
  • Access to electronically approve HRMS transactions.

To ensure provisioning happens successfully:

  • You must have a CWL account.
  • Your employee ID must be attached to your CWL account.
  • To confirm this, log into your CWL account.
  • Once everything is in place, HRMS provisioning should occur within 24 hours.

Apply for HRMS access

Applying for access is only required if:

  • You require access to admin applications such as eRecruit, ePAF, Position Management, the Sick Leave system or to view employment records for your faculty and staff.
  • You require access to approve HRMS transactions but you weren’t provisioned for this automatically (as per basic access instructions above).


Cancel HRMS access


  • When a person terminates, retires or goes on leave, HRMS access will be automatically de-provisioned (see here for more information on de-provisioning and for information on grace periods).
  • In all other circumstances (eg: employee moving to another department), complete an HRMS Access Request Form to remove access.
  • In the upper right corner of the form, enter the employee’s CWL ID and select the Delete Access checkbox.
  • Print, sign, and send the form to Human Resources or email to

Note: It is extremely important that this happens as quickly as possible.
