Three Paychecks Coming in June
Because there are five Fridays in June and December 2023, employees who are paid bi-weekly will receive three paychecks in those months. Benefits deductions will not be taken from the third paycheck. Starting in August 2023, all employees who are currently paid monthly will move to the bi-weekly pay schedule, with the first two payments depositing on August 11 and August 25. Be on the lookout for an email with additional details about the payroll schedule change that begins in August. If you have any questions, please contact
