Dear SETA Staff,
Under the current payroll calendar, staff have to forecast the last 4 worked days in each pay period, which has often resulted in payroll adjustments due to unexpected time off. In June of 2017, the Agency will be making a transition to real time reporting of actual time worked. The purpose of this transition is to eliminate the need to forecast hours worked and reduce the number of payroll corrections required. (See attached 2017 calendar)
How will this impact you?
- The payroll transition will take place effective Pay Period 13 (Pay Date June 30, 2017).
- Pay Period 13 will be a single week pay, covering June 11 to June 17, and will be submitted on June 20, 2017, and paid on June 30, 2017. Employees will be paid for all hours worked from June 11 to June 17.
- There will be no insurance deduction as it is the third pay day of the month.
- Accruals (vacation, sick leave, etc.) will be prorated at a one-week calculation, rather than the usual bi-weekly for this pay period only.
- Pay Period 14, covering June 18 to July 1 will be submitted on July 3, 2017, and paid on July 14, 2017. Employees will be paid for two weeks on that date and the normal health insurance premium will be deducted.
- Thereafter, the pay periods will be every two weeks and paid every two weeks. Time reported in the system will be the actual time worked during that pay period.
- There will be no loss of pay in this transition and employees will be paid for all hours worked.
If you have any questions about this transition, feel free to reach out to me.
