All Pay Periods

Due Dates

All state payroll warrants are issued by the State Controller’s Office (SCO). The SCO has standard processing guidelines that must be followed in order to generate timely and accurate pay through automated processing. Therefore, any “unapproved” time and/or pay documentation, such as Adjustment forms and Dock submitted to Payroll Services after the established due date may result in a delay of payment.

Separating Employees

Please notify Payroll of any time used and/or earned for all separating Salaried employees.

All separating Salaried and Hourly employees must complete a Clearance Certificate form.

Payment of Wages at Separation

Labor Code sections 201 and 202 require the CSU to pay separating employees, including Student Assistants, in a specified timeframe depending on whether the employee is being discharged or resigns. The specific timeframes are as follows:

  • Discharge: Employee must be paid wages earned immediately.
  • Resignation: An employee who resigns from employment must be paid wages earned no later than 72 hours from the date of separation. However, if the employee provides the employer at least 72 hours notice of his/her impending separation, he/she is entitled to owed wages at the time of separation.

For Staff and Faculty: Contact your payroll technician for more information.

For Student Assistants: Contact Liz Campos at extension 5-8268
