Payroll Procedures

  • Salary checks are issued on the 15th and on the last workday of each month. If a payday falls on a scheduled holiday or weekend, checks are issued the preceding weekday. Employees assigned to a specific building will receive their paychecks at their assigned building. Itinerant teachers, teachers in off-site programs, evening instructors and some others will have their paychecks mailed to their homes.

    In special circumstances employees may have their paychecks issued prior to the payroll date. In this event, a written request signed by an administrator must be sent to James Widmer at the Business Office at the Administrative Center. If an employee is not present on a payday, the check will be returned directly to the Payroll Department.

    Direct Deposit

    Nassau BOCES encourages employees to participate in the Direct Deposit Payroll Program in which employees may elect to have their earnings electronically deposited into their personal bank accounts. "Direct Deposit" forms are available in the main office of each building or can be obtained from the Payroll Office, (516) 396-2300. The completed form including a canceled check should be sent to the Payroll Office. Money will be available to employees on the morning of the payroll date.

    Hourly/daily paid employees are paid for work performed from the first to the 15th of a month on the last day of that month. Earnings for work performed from the 16th to the end of the month are paid on the 15th of the following month.
