Payroll Schedule

Academic and professional employees with ten or twelve month obligations are paid on a twenty-six (26) bi-weekly pay period basis. Paydays are alternate Wednesdays. Research Foundation employees are also paid on a bi-weekly basis with a payday of alternate Fridays.

Paychecks

Payday is every other Wednesday. College employees are paid on a two-week lag basis: a two-week delay between the time the work is performed and when the salary for that work is received. Under the lag payroll system, new employees must wait approximately four weeks to receive their first full paycheck. The first paycheck will cover up to the first two weeks of employment, depending upon the number of days worked within the pay period. Subsequent paychecks will be for the entire two-week pay period.

Paycheck / Direct Deposit Advice Distribution & Return Policy

The Paycheck/Direct Deposit Advice Distribution & Return Policy applies to all checks and advices issued by the Purchase College Payroll Department.  This includes Faculty, Staff, Grad Assistants, Student Assistants, & College Work Study. 

Paychecks/Advices are to be picked up by the department designee on the scheduled pay date.  The department designee must present their college identification card and sign an acknowledgement /certification to confirm they are taking possession of the checks/advices and will distribute them in accordance with Purchase policy.  They must return all checks/advices that were not distributed within 14 days (1 pay period).  

Once picked up, checks/advices will be distributed to the employees through, either, the employee’s supervisor or the department designee.  The designee should confirm the identity of the employee prior to giving out the check/advice.  Upon the employee's receipt of their paycheck/advice they must sign or initial the distribution roster.

Checks/advices must not be left unattended and are not to be placed in unlocked mailboxes.  Checks are not to be mailed out by the department unless arrangements have been made by the employee to do so.  This means they have a signed a “Paycheck Mailing Authorization” form on file (available on HR site and in Payroll) and they have provided self-addressed stamped envelopes.   

After checks/advices are distributed, the signed employee roster must be returned to Payroll within 14 days (1 pay period).  If there are any checks/advices that have not been picked up by the employee(s) the department must attempt to contact the employee.  Attempts can be made via email, phone, etc.  Once all attempts to contact said employee(s) have been exhausted and have been unsuccessful, said checks/advices must be returned to the Payroll office within 14 days (1 pay period) of issuance of the checks/advices.

NOTE: The College must follow the Office of the State Comptroller policy regarding returned checks/advices:
