Policy V-E: Policy for Payroll

Payroll procedures are designed to protect both the school and the individual from tax or insurance errors.

All employees must have all payroll papers and required information on file in the Human Resource Office on or before the third day of employment.  In no case will an employee be paid without proper documentation on file.

The responsibility for accurate payroll reporting rests with the supervisor; however, dock time, overtime, vacation, etc., are also screened by District Payroll and Human Resources. 

The college reserves the right to determine the employee's last working day in the event of the employee's resignation or termination.  Retirements are always effective the last day of the month for employees retiring under the Teacher Retirement System or the Optional Retirement System.

Staff employees paid only for hours worked, who qualify for partial benefits, receive sick leave and are eligible for retirement and insurance, but do not receive holiday or vacation pay.

In general, employees are paid on the last working day of the month, according to the pay schedule published by payroll. Full-time employees are paid from the first day through the last day of the month. Part-time employees are paid from a specified date each month to a specified date the following month. Employees hired and/or terminated during a month will be paid only for actual days worked during that month.

Employee salaries must be approved by the Board of Trustees.
