Policy Statement
Payment for services performed by an employee will be made on regularly scheduled pay dates only. State regulations prohibit payments made in advance of scheduled pay dates.
Reason for policy
To ensure compliance with the Federal Wage-Hour Law, regulations of the Internal Revenue Service, and laws of the State of Georgia, the University will purchase services from employees only through the payroll system. This precludes any type of contractual arrangement with any University employee for payment of services other than through established payroll procedures.
Please view the applicable Payroll calendar for information on when payroll is disbursedtomonthly, academic, biweekly, and summer school employees. A link to these Payroll Calendars has been provided below under the Related Information section.
