Compensation Procedures, Payroll Deductions, Work Schedules & Overtime
An annual salary for a full-time staff member is divided into (26) bi-weekly pays. Each paycheck will include earnings for all work performed through the end of the current payroll period.
Full-time staff members are required to have their paycheck deposited directly into a bank account. Staff members will receive a pay advice during the normal payroll periods. The pay advice will indicate the amount of the deposit as well as a detail of earnings and deductions for the current pay period. Authorization for direct deposit can be requested through the Payroll Department.
