Pay Timing Reminder for December and January

News from November 29, 2016

Moving forward, the University will follow the normal payment schedule in the weeks before Thanksgiving and the Special Winter Vacation. Penn faculty and staff will now receive regular, steady payments based on actual time worked, week-to-week or month-to-month, regardless of the season. This payment schedule eliminates the two- or six-week gap in paycheck payments.

The last pay in December is Friday, December 30, 2016.
