This directive describes how salary and wage employees are paid, how to calculate pay for working partial bi-weekly pay periods, how to adjust the salary for non union employees, how to calculate annual, daily and hourly rates and provides information on lump sum payments.
Employees in a salaried position are paid a bi-weekly salary every two weeks.
Wage employees are paid at two-week intervals. Wage employees will only be hired to perform non-management duties (for more information, see directive Wage Employees).
Employees commencing employment after the first work day of a bi-weekly pay period or terminating employment before the last work day will be paid for the number of full or partial work days worked. Paid holidays falling within that period are included.
If an employee is absent for part of a bi-weekly pay period, using the daily rate, the bi-weekly salary will be reduced by the number of full or partial work days not worked.
Portions of a work day paid will be rounded to the nearest quarter hour.
Any deductions in a bi-weekly pay period will not exceed the bi-weekly salary.
The following process is to be used to calculate salary adjustments for employees in classifications assigned to a pay range.
Lump sum payments are part of employee compensation and are subject to payroll deductions as appropriate for the type of payment.
