Payroll deadlines

 All payroll documentation must be submitted to Human Resources by close of business on Monday of the non-pay week, *or the previous Friday if the Monday is a public holiday. This documentation includes:

  • all payroll forms (ie requests for casual appointments, casual claim forms, bank details/deductions, tax forms, overtime claim forms)

  • all documentation requiring letters for employees to sign (ie variations, higher duties, extensions, fixed term appointments and casual appointments). 

If documentation is received after the deadline, payment will be not be made until the following pay cycle.  

Therefore, to ensure that employees receive payment within the appropriate pay cycle, Faculties and Departments should forward all documentation to Human Resources as soon as it is actioned and complete - forms should not be delivered on the deadline unless there are outstanding issues that were unable to be resolved until that time.  The deadline is the latest time that documentation can be accepted for employees to be paid within the pay cycle. 

If payroll documentation is submitted to Human Resources after the deadline, the appropriate Faculty/Department is to inform the relevant employee that they will be paid in the next pay cycle.
