Payroll Information for Non-Exempt Employees

The Payroll Office is committed to producing a timely and accurate payroll.  Non-exempt employees are paid on the 10th and 25th of each month and are required to submit a Non-Exempt Attendance Report or Recap Timesheet on the last working day of each period.  Normally they are the 15th and last working day of each month. Attendance reports must be signed and dated by both employee and supervisor/manager. Recaps must be signed and dated by both Preparer and Approver. 

The Payroll Processing Schedule is published to department administrators between the 25th and last day of each month via email and includes any exceptions to the standard submission dates. To ensure that your time sheet is processed in a timely manner, please hand deliver the original attendance report to the Payroll Office on the period end date. Inter-office mail does not guarantee same-day or next-day delivery.  Clearly mark "Revisions' as such to avoid confusion.

We strongly encourage you to review your earnings statement each pay period to identify any errors as quickly as possible. You are your best resource to ensure that your pay is correct. Should you discover a discrepancy in your check, please contact your supervisor/manager first. He/She will research the problem and contact the Payroll or Human Resource Office, as appropriate, to initiate resolution. The supervisor/manager should contact Payroll to determine the required documentation for an off-cycle check request.

The Payroll Office does not produce off-cycle checks on demand. Corrections will be processed in the next payroll cycle. Off-cycle checks will be produced at the discretion of the Director of Payroll and will be issued no sooner than three business days following the pay date.

Faxed timesheets will not be accepted or processed.

Currently, there are two types of timesheets for the semi-monthly payroll. For salaried/hourly non-exempt employees, please submit the Non- Exempt Attendance Report. All other non-exempt employees please submit a Recap Timesheet.



The Payroll Schedule for January through December 2017 is available for download.
