On August 6th, the Board of Trustees approved the following recommendation. The Payroll Task Force recommends the transition to bi- weekly payroll dates, beginning January 1, 2013. All labor agreements would reflect hourly rates of compensation for all employees, and rates would be rounded to cents. All incentives would be reflected as hourly rates. The Payroll Task Force also recommends the purchase of the Kronos accrual tracking software module. This purchase will eliminate the need to manually change data. It is necessary to purchase this software to create a seamless operability within the accrual tracking.

How will your hourly wage be calculated? What we do with semi-monthly paychecks Payroll is calculated by dividing 2080 base hours by 24 pay dates to arrive at 86.66 hours being paid each payroll. What will we do now? Your pay rate will be calculated as an hourly wage. Your established yearly rate will be divided by 2080. 2080 base hours is found from 52 weeks in a year at 40 hours per week. This is the amount of hours worked in the year. You will be paid based on hours worked as recorded through Kronos. There will be 26 paychecks each year.
