Payroll Dates for Wage Employees

Pay Periods

Standard pay periods for full- time employees are the 10th through 24th of a month and the 25th through the 9th of a month. They are paid semi-monthly.  Supplemental part-time employees are also typically paid semi- monthly. Wage employees are paid biweekly.  The calendar of pay dates is posted on the Payroll web site at the link above.

When paydays fall on weekends or holidays, pay is disbursed and direct deposits are made on the last workday before the regular pay date.

Reporting Hours of Work

Payroll Periods and Pay Dates

This section does not apply to supplemental part-time employees.

All non-exempt employees must complete a weekly time card or weekly time sheet to account for their hours worked. The weekly time card is to be signed by the employee and their supervisor at the end of the work week. The supervisor must retain the completed weekly time card for four years. Overtime pay forms must be submitted to the Payroll Office for full-time non-exempt employees when hours worked are beyond the 40 for the work week.

Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit
