Employee Self Service Status

Employee Self Service is currently down for maintenance.


Employee Self Service is unavailable because payroll is being processed.

When you access Lawson to use Employee Self Service while payroll is being run, you will not see any of the items you normally use to access your information.
After the payroll has been completed or after maintenance is complete, Employee Self Service will again become available.
When Employee Self Service is being stopped / started, you will also see a message box indicating that portal updates have been downloaded.
Always ALLOW the updates to happen or your menu will not rebuild correctly.

Please, do not open any help desk tickets pertaining to this situation.
