To check if you have only been paid 2 hours, you can log into Mosaic and on the top navigation bar, choose “Employee Self Service”, then click on “Pay” square. Look for a cheque value above average and click on it (make sure to disable any pop-up blockers). A PDF file with your paycheque will pop up and there should be a line in it named “TA Train”, and it should equal 5 hours and $224.75 in earnings if you are a grad TA, or $130.35 if you are an undergrad TA.
In order to receive payment for the training, you must successfully complete all 3-hours of training, including achieving a score of 100% on the quiz that is part of each training module, by no later than December 31, 2021. Information about how to register for the training can be found at: https://hr.mcmaster.ca/app/uploads/2021/08/TA-Training-Communication_How-to-Register.pdf
For those of you who are in this situation and complete the remaining 3-hours of training, you will be paid the 3-hours on the January 28, 2022 pay deposit.
Please note that if you do not successfully complete all 3-hours of training as noted above, you will not be paid for any partially completed training and you will not be able to complete the training, with pay, at a later date.”
