To reconcile the fiscal and calendar year ends, employees are paid on June 3rd, 18th and 30th, and December 3rd, 18th, and 31st.

Garnishments are legal proceedings imposed by a court of law upon the University requiring payment to a third party of monies earned by an employee. The University will accept legal garnishments and tax levies against wages in compliance with Federal and State statutes. Employee pay will be held upon receipt of a garnishment by the University, and until a court order is issued indicating satisfaction of the indebtedness or until ordered to surrender the monies to the court or its agent.
Federal law requires employers to withhold FICA (retirement and medicare) taxes from all employees (unless the employee’s citizenship status provides and exemption).
