Question: I'd like my paystub given to me in a timely manner. What is the reasoning behind only a PIC being about to distribute them? Can't the administrative assistants take on this job?
Answer by Nancy Pavona, Administrative Services Manager: Paystubs are to be hand delivered to staff by someone other than the primary timekeeper for the particular payroll group.
This process reflects payroll best practices and was shared with us by the Finance/Payroll office during our audit last year. Since most of the Administrative Assistants are the primary timekeepers, someone else must distribute the paystubs. The paystubs should be given out to staff members on the paydate or on the earliest day thereafter that the staff member is present at the work location.
