Payroll Department Overview
The payroll department is responsible for accurate payroll processing, inputting employee payroll and benefit deductions, payroll direct deposit and check distribution, and annual IRS Form W-2 reporting.
Please read this annual memorandum which outlines timecard due dates and related pay dates for timecard users.
All staff, supervisors, and managers should read this important timecard procedures memorandum to understand timecard procedures and responsibilities.
The District distributes all payroll checks via regular United States mail only. Payroll checks include all paper checks and payroll direct deposit advices. This process is applicable to all employees, including permanent, temporary, and student employees. Please note that following points related to payroll checks:
- To ensure accurate and timely delivery of your payroll check or direct deposit advice via regular United States mail, please make sure the DIstrict has your correct mailing address. Submit a change of address notice directly to the Human Resources Department to update your address on file with the District.
- The District encourages enrollment in payroll direct deposit, which is available to all employees. Direct deposit is safe, timely, and avoids lost paper checks. In addition, direct deposit saves time by avoiding errands to the bank. Complete a Payroll Direct Deposit Enrollment Authorization form.
- Payroll checks are valid on the actual pay date. You may cash your payroll check on or after the actual pay date. Should you happen to receive your payroll check via United States mail before the actual pay date, then the payroll check will not yet be valid. You cannot cash your payroll check before the pay date. Your financial institution may assess you returned check fees or other bank fees should you attempt to deposit or cash your payroll check before the actual pay date.
