All University employees.
The purpose of this Policy is to set forth University policy and procedures regarding payment for services rendered by University employees.
The pay dates at Thomas More University are on the 15th day of the month and the last day of the month. Whenever these dates fall on a weekend or holiday the pay dates will be the last preceding working day.
All University employees (excluding Work Study students and students under the age of 18) are required to participate in the University’s direct deposit system for payroll disbursement. Employees are required to enroll in the direct deposit system during the new hire process and remain on direct deposit for the duration of their employment. A paystub will be issued by the University for each direct deposit payroll disbursement.
Employees are responsible for checking their paystub each pay period for accuracy of wages and deductions, and notify their supervisor and Payroll Department promptly of any problems. Errors in pay or improper deductions will be resolved. If the employee is overpaid, arrangements will be made with the employee to return the funds. The University will not allow any form of retaliation against individuals who reports an error in pay or improper deduction. Retaliation is unacceptable. Any form of retaliation will result in disciplinary action, up to and including discharge.
Upon termination of employment for any reason, voluntarily or involuntarily, the University will pay the employee’s final wages no later than the earlier of the next regularly scheduled payday or fifteen days from the date of separation, through regular pay channels or by mail if requested by the employee.
Hours of Operations Policy
Employees may authorize the University to deposit their paychecks into a bank account of their choice, provided the bank accepts direct deposit paychecks. Direct deposit procedures are available from Human Resources. The University prefers that employees authorize direct deposit and encourages all employees to complete the process.
This is a new policy, replacing language in the Staff Manual (May 2014).
There are no appendices to this policy.
