1 Payroll Changes – Exempt Staff Individual School Meetings October - November, 2011

2 Payroll Changes – Exempt Staff

3 Why?

4 – NC General Assembly passed House Bill 720 prohibiting the pre-payment of teachers beginning in August This legislation has rewritten NC General Statute 115C-302.1(b) to say: “Teachers shall be paid only for the days employed as of the set pay date. Payment for a full month when days employed are less than a full month is prohibited, as this constitutes prepayment.” DPI has informed us there may be some type of technical correction to the legislation, which may change the date for the first pay check. – Per Leanne E. Winner, NCSBA Director of Governmental Relations, the bill sponsor is working to get the technical correction passed in a special session in November. Otherwise, it will have to wait until May.

20 Draft of Pay Schedule - 12 month Exempt Staff

21 What else?

22 Why was my paycheck not as high as I thought? – Hours were reduced as a part of budget cuts – 10 months pay was divided over 23 pay periods, not 20 (bi-weekly vs. semi-monthly) – Staff were not conscious of the impact of deductions (“insurance poor”) What happened to my deductions? – There were deduction errors that were unrelated to the conversion – Two enrollment periods for state health plan – Premium increases/decreases – For 10 month employees on installments, deductions are taken over 10 months vs. 12 Q & A

23 Does this affect me if I am on installments? – YES Payments made under state installments are for June and July 2012 (now) Payments made under state installments are for July and August 2013 (later) August check will be delayed the same for all teachers and certified staff Does this affect me if I am a 12 month employee? – YES Every CCS employee will be on bi-weekly pay Every employee must evaluate their own personal financial needs and plan accordingly Every 12 month employee will have a 7 day processing time Q & A

24 I am a 10 month teacher and/or certified employee, why is my pay being held for three weeks when 12 month is held one week? – Teachers and/or certified employees have been prepaid for approximately 2 weeks under the current calendar legislation Plus – Every employees will have a 7 day processing time Why is a 7-day processing time necessary? – One day for employee to approve time on TimeKeeper – One day for supervisor/Principal to approve time on TimeKeeper – Three days for Cabarrus County Schools to process payroll – Two days for the bank to process direct deposit file Can mortgage/loan payment dates with SECU be changed? – NCSBA has begun conversations with the SECU and we will be back in touch once we have a definitive answer. Q & A

25 Increase efficiency and fiscal accountability Increases cash flow (due to no advance pay) Increases employee understanding of paycheck – All employees will be on the same schedule – Absence period and pay period will be the same – Change will eliminate advance payments Difficult to collect “unearned” pay from employees – Terminated employment – Did not report to work and did not have accrued leave Change Benefits

26 Align pay with work Employees are currently paid in advance – for up to 12 days (56% of their pay) Reduces time between pay checks – Old schedule – December – January gap = approximately 40 days – New schedule – 2 week intervals – New employees will have a shorter waiting period for their first pay check Supplements may be paid earlier than June 2013 – (more details in April-May 2012) Change Benefits

27 Help and Assistance?

28 Finance will provide encouraging reminders through and/or TimeKeeper sign on screens – Think about and/or adjust summer cash NOW – Call State Employees Credit Union – Consider additional (2nd or 3rd) direct deposit – Employee Assistance Program (EAP) has financial planning assistance To receive professional, confidential assistance, call – Save Longevity – Save November 2011 and June 2012 Supplements The expectation is that employees understand the bottom line affect of this change and have time to plan for the conversion as needed. Finance Dept. Planning Assistance

29 Every effort will be made to provide information and assistance during this conversion period including: – Final pay schedule (pending legislation) non-draft – State installment option (pending legislation) – Deduction schedule with amounts – Salary schedule with daily rate of pay for teachers – Salary schedule for other exempt staff Finance Dept.
