DuckWeb FAQs

 

What is DuckWeb for Employees?

DuckWeb for Employees allows employees to look at their benefit and payroll data stored in the Banner Human Resources Information System (HRIS).

I have forgotten my PAC; what should I do?

Upon logging into Duckweb you may indicate that you have forgotten your PAC by clicking on the button "Forgotten PAC?" You will be asked to enter your birthdate (MMDDYY.) If you have a security question, you will be asked to answer it. When you answer correctly the system will allow you to reset your PAC. If you do not have a security question you will need to have your PAC reset.

  • For Students, including applicant for admission, contact or visit the Office of the Registrar, 2nd Floor, Oregon Hall 541-346-2935.

I am a new employee; how do I get my PAC?

New unclassified employees will be sent a PAC letter along with their initial contract from Human Resources. New classified employees will be sent a PAC letter via campus mail as soon as their affiliation with the campus is established in the payroll database. If employee is not new to campus, see instructions above.

How do I get into DuckWeb for Employees?

To login to DuckWeb for Employees, there are four things you need: the website address, your UO ID number, your personal access code (PAC) and a security question.

Website Address: https://duckweb.uoregon.edu or go to UO home page and click on DuckWeb.

ID number: your UO ID number (or your social security number until you have a UO ID number)

Personal Access Code: This code is sent confidentially to each employee.

Security Question: The security question is set up by you upon initial login to DuckWeb. You must think of a question for which you and you alone know the answer. In order for the security question to help protect your sensitive information, the question must not have a yes or no answer.

Why do I have to create a security question?

A. In case you ever forget your PAC, you may authenticate yourself to DuckWeb by correctly answering your own security question.

Can anyone else access my personal data through the employee web?

A. No. Only you will know your identification number and PAC, information necessary to access DuckWeb. You may also change your PAC and/or your security question any time.

How do I change my PAC?

A. You have two methods for changing your PAC.

First, you may click on the "Forgotten PAC?" button on the login screen. You will be asked to enter your birthdate (MMDDYY.) If you have a security question, you will be asked to answer it. When you answer correctly you can reset your PAC. If you do not have a security question you will need to have you PAC reset.

  • For Faculty, Officers of Administration, Classified and Temporary Staff contact the Office of Human Resources at 541-346-3159.
  • For Students, including applicant for admission, contact or visit the Office of the Registrar, 2nd Floor, Oregon Hall 541-346-2935.

Second, once you are in DuckWeb for Employees, click on Personal Information, then click on change Personal Access Code (PAC) and follow the instructions.

How do I move around within DuckWeb?

A. The program works best if you use the buttons or links at the top or bottom of the screen of Duck Web. You will find the program does not work if you repeatedly use the back button in your browser.

A. Click on the "Reload" button at the top of your web browser.

After logging on to DuckWeb, I left my computer and did something else for a while. Now I have been logged off of DuckWeb. What happened and what should I do?

A. After 25 minutes of inactivity or 25 minutes of looking at an unsecured site, the system will automatically log you off. This prevents other people from looking at your personal information if you forget to close DuckWeb and are away from your desk.

I'm a long time employee, why does the "begin date" on my current job say, 01-AUG-1998 and the "date available to be used" on my leave balances form show 01-JUL-1998?

A. Disregard these dates if you're a long time employee. These dates are relics of the Banner implementation and data conversion process during the summer of 1998.

Why is the number on the Pay Stub different from my bank account number?

A. The number you see is a Banner System generated number that the Payroll Office would use to reprint a check or earnings statement.

Does the total employer contribution (listed under net amount) on the pay stub include all employer contributions?

A. No, the total represents employer expenses such as Mass Transit Tax, Workers Compensation, and Social Security and Medicare taxes. It does not include employer contributions or subsidies.

Why do the employer medical and dental contributions show as negative numbers?

A. Employer contributions, shown as negative deductions, are added to employee earnings. Positive deductions are subtracted from employee earnings.

Why isn't cash back showing?

A. In the payroll calculation, cashback is added to net pay and not shown as a separate amount. Your regular printed earnings statement has been programmed to add a subtotal in order to provide this information to you. We plan to enhance the web paystub soon with similar programming.

To compute cashback, subtract insurances (medical, dental, basic life, pre-tax life, and administration fees) from employer contributions and subsidies.

Where do I find my year-to-date deduction amounts?

A. The pay stub on the web does not list year to date amounts. However, under the payroll menu you can select Deduction History and enter the full year date range.

What should I do if I think some of the information shown is incorrect?

A . The accuracy of the information you see in DuckWeb is reliant upon accurate data entry into the Banner database. Several campus offices share the responsibility for data entry. When you find erroneous information, please call the telephone number indicated on the screen.

How do I obtain access to Web for Faculty?

A. Web for Faculty is automatically available to you if you are a faculty member or GTF. You may view or download your class lists, view your teaching schedule and access your grade rosters at the end of the term in order to submit grades. Additional access is granted to faculty members who need access to student records for advising purposes. Complete the Access request form available on the Registrar's website.

Do I use the same DuckWeb Personal Access Code (PAC) for Web for Student, Web for Faculty and Web for Employee?

A. Yes. There is only one DuckWeb PAC. Access to each of the three DuckWeb services is determined as follows:

  • Current and past students can access Web for Student.
  • Current Faculty, Staff and Student employees can access Web for Employee.
  • Faculty and GTF's can access Web for Faculty for certain menu items related to the courses they are teaching. Faculty that submit an Access Request form can access additional student record information as approved by the Registrar.
