Payroll Early Submission: During the Holidays, due to banking Holiday closures our payroll must be submitted early for several pay periods this Holiday season in order for the direct deposits to be available by the paid date.
Therefore we would like to remind all staff: It is, as always, of utmost importance to have your timesheets mailed by 5pm on the due date on the payroll schedule. In addition, whenever possible, we would like to encourage early mailing. If you are not working over the weekend, please try to mail your timesheet Friday instead of waiting until Monday. If you do work over the weekend of course you cannot mail it until Monday as the signatures must be after the work was performed. We strongly suggest having everything reviewed and signed at the end of your shift on the last day you work in the pay period instead of waiting until the due date. We will absolutely NOT be able to accept timesheets mailed Tuesday in the upcoming months as we sometimes try to do as a courtesy. Off schedule checks will not be given for late timesheets and they will be paid the following payroll.
This notice effects the 11/25/16 pay date and due to the Christmas Holiday the pay date has been changed to 12/22/16 instead of 12/23/16.
