In order for the employee to be paid correctly, their payable time must be approved in a timely manner. During the course of a pay period, payable time is available for approval the next business day after the employee submits their timesheet.
Deadline for approving payable time for biweekly paid employees is two days after the pay period end date: 5 p.m. on Tuesday of a payroll processing* week. (This is also two days before that payroll is finalized.)
Deadline for approving payable time for monthly paid employees is two days before that payroll is finalized, which can fall on various days of the week. Please refer to your campus payroll office for the exact days of each month.
*Payable time approvals are not allowed when active processing begins for the respective pay period. This usually includes two full business days before that payroll is finalized.
