Checks will be distributed by the manager of each department on payday. Checks will not be released to any person other than the employee unless there the employee signs an authorization to release their check to another person — including a spouse.
Direct deposit is the preferred method by which employees are paid. Employees should complete a change form as early as possible if their account information is changed for any reason.
Your check stub will show you how your check was computed. It shows your regular pay, overtime pay (if any), gross pay, each payroll deduction for that pay period and year-to-date totals for earnings, FICA, Federal withholding taxes, State withholding taxes, local withholding taxes (if any), and disability contributions. The law requires that we deduct applicable Social Security, federal, state, and local (if any) taxes from your paycheck. If you wish to make changes to the deductions taken out each week, please see [specify official (e.g., Benefits Manager]) and fill out a new Form W-4 to effect any changes. No changes can be made without a properly filled out Form W-4 being submitted at least one week in advance of the payroll period to have the change.
