#3 Supplemental Payroll Cycles Availability and Direct Deposits
What Happens Today in HRS? Supplemental payroll cycles are available and the only option for these supplemental payroll cycles are paper checks.
What is Changing in HCM? Supplemental payroll cycles will change from being available almost every day to only twice per week. A significant change from the paper check only exists for HRS. With this change, District/Agency Payroll Schedules for HCM are available for the entire year. Districts/Agencies can plan months in advance for short payroll periods and revised pay dates due to bank holidays.
Who is Impacted? All Districts/Agencies implementing HCM.
What is the Impact? The availability of supplemental payroll cycles is reduced and will process on Tuesdays and Thursdays unless noted as a holiday. Transactions entered on Tuesday will issue on Friday. Transactions entered on Thursday will be issued the following Tuesday unless impacted by a bank holiday.
Considerations: Understanding the District Payroll Schedule, reviewing the supplemental payroll cycles and regular retro cycles, and reviewing these deadlines with departments and school sites that submit documentation to payroll for processing. Discussing these changes is critical for District/Agency success.
