Hourly wages - digital registration

Employees with hourly wages must submit time sheets to OsloMet in order to receive payment. This page provides information on how to send digital time sheets.

OsloMet use digital time sheets for hourly employees, and use the Norwegian Government Agency for Financial Management’s (DFØ) self-service solutions for digital transactions.

When you have signed the contract, you will get access to a menu item in the DFØ app called "My contracts". This gives an overview over active, future and expired contracts, and is the function by which you record your hours and send time sheets.

  • Registration of hours with factor

    You register working hours in "Mine kontrakter" - choose contract - "Timeliste" - choose month - choose date. The field "Arbeidsoppgave" / "Task" is given if the contract only contains one task. If there are more tasks in the same contract, or the same task has more than one emnekode, you need to choose "Taks" and then choose the correct task ("arbeidsoppgave" in Norwegian). Here you will se a field called "Vekting". This indicates the agreed factor for the hours you register. Here you only need to register the hours actually spent. The system calculates the correct amount of hours according to the terms of the contract.  

    In some cases, a factor will be specified in the text field of the contract, or agreed upon some other way, while the task indicates Vekting 1. In these cases, you must calculate how many hours you are to be compensated for, and then register the working hours so that you get the correct number of hours. For example, if a factor of 3 has been agreed for 3 hours of work, you register 9 hours of work this day.

      • Employees on hourly pay can use egenmelding når when they have been employed for two months and have agreed on the working hours in advance, when the sick leave falls on the days and/or hours that have been agreed on in advance.
