Payroll Services is responsible for processing payroll and required deductions including taxes and retirement withholdings.  We strive to provide our employees with excellent customer service to meet their payroll needs.

Payroll Process

The payroll process requires collaboration between employees, employees’ departments, Human Resources and Payroll.  We work as a team to make sure employees are paid accurately and on time.

  • Payday is dependent upon your employment category.
  • If payday falls on a weekend or a holiday, payday is the last working day prior to that date.
