Campus communication – Nov. 1, 2019

Campus community,

On Oct 21, President Guice sent an email regarding the upcoming the payroll schedule for non-classified employees.

Beginning in January 2020, non-classified employees – excluding nine-month faculty and adjunct instructors – will be paid on a biweekly cycle. The change to biweekly from monthly pay periods will impact non-classified staff, academic administrators, and graduate and undergraduate student employees. The payroll schedule for classified employees will not change. 

The Division of Finance will hold informational sessions regarding the new biweekly payroll cycle and the impact it will have on employees’ payroll disbursement, tax withholdings, other deductions, and time reporting. These sessions will be held at 3 p.m. on Nov. 7 and at 10 a.m. on Nov. 12 in Wyly Auditorium. The presentations for the informational sessions will also be made available on the University’s Workday webpage following the sessions. All employees impacted by the payroll schedule change are welcome to attend.

Within the next few weeks, Dow Eldridge in the Office of the Comptroller will also send emails to non-classified employees who are required to complete new authorization forms for certain withholdings and deductions due to the payroll schedule change. Employees who will be required to complete new forms are non-classified employees with additional federal and state withholding amounts specified on their current W-4 and L-4 tax forms, as well as those with credit union deductions, 403B plans, and deferred compensation plans.

If you have questions regarding this change, please email workday@latech.edu. Thank you for your understanding and patience as our University implementation team members continue to devote a significant amount of their time to ensuring the Workday project is successful.
