A service that started as a way to view online pay statements, the employee self- service portal (ESS), has expanded to allow employees to view and change their personal data.
ESS is available to all regular, temporary, and student employees. Because ESS is web-based, employees do not have to be IRIS users to access their information.
In addition to being able to view pay statements, benefits statements, bank information, education, previous W-2 statements dating back to 2002, leave balances, and training history, employees can make changes to several categories of personal information:
- Addresses and phone numbers for your home.
- Disclosure declaration limiting how much information is published about you within the university.
- IRS Form W-4, including tax withholding declarations used by the payroll system. For example, if you get married or you want an additional amount withheld, you may want to change your current declaration.
- Personal data including race, ethnicity, disability, and veteran status.
To access ESS, visit https://irisweb.tennessee.edu. Enter your NetID and password when prompted. Click the employee self-service tab, then select the desired feature.
