Self-Service Portal Gives You Convenient Access to Your Personal Data

HRConnection v0.1

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.

For assistance or additional information, contact the IRIS Help Desk at irishelpdesk@tennessee.edu.
