Paycheck Distribution Direct Deposit Paychecks. Direct Deposit voucher information is available through ipay, a secure, web based, self service software program that stores individual check information for each employee. In order for an employee to view their check information they are required to register on the ipay site to obtain a unique ID and password. No paper direct deposit vouchers are distributed nor produced from the Payroll Department. Live Paychecks. All live paychecks payable to employees are held in the Payroll Department each pay day for pick up. The employee must bring his/her ID in order to receive their check. No checks will be distributed without a picture ID. If the employee needs to have someone other than his/herself pick up their check, this must be arranged in advance with the Payroll Management. All paychecks for the Law School are delivered by private courier to the Director of Fiscal Affairs at the Law School campus. Manual Paychecks. Manual checks are held in the Payroll Department for pick up by the employee. The employee must bring a picture ID in order to obtain their check. In emergency situations, manual checks can be distributed to a specified person other than the check recipient, but only if arranged in advance with Payroll Management. Direct Deposit Direct deposit is voluntary, and an employee can initiate direct deposit of their paycheck by contacting the Payroll Department for a direct deposit form, or by downloading a form from the LMU website. Any bank that participates in electronic funds transfers can be used. Authorization to start, change or stop a direct deposit will require an employee s signature. Any incomplete forms will be returned to the employee for correction. A maximum of four direct deposit accounts can be set up (checking or savings). A pre notification period of one full pay cycle is required for all direct deposits. An employee can change or stop their direct deposit by completing a direct deposit authorization form. These forms can be obtained by contacting the Payroll Department or on the LMU website. ipay ipay is a secure, web based, hosted system that collects and stores paycheck and W2 data for each employee. This system is hosted by ADP, the university s third party payroll company. Employees can gain access to their pay stub information by registering on the ipay website and obtaining a login ID and generating a password. Registration instructions can be obtained from the Payroll Department or on the LMU website. The Payroll Department does not have access to each employees account on ipay. Only the employee can see their individual information. ipay is available to terminated employees also. If an employee has forgotten his/her login ID, they can contact the Payroll Department for this information. The Payroll Department, however, does not keep password information, so if a password is forgotten, the employee can request for it to be reset by the Payroll Department which will allow the employee to generate a new password. Payment Descriptions The university makes various types of payments to its employees, depending on the document received:
7 SUBJECT: Page 7 of 14 Regular Base Salary Overtime Flex Credits Additional Straight Time Doubletime Holiday Vacation Sick Imputed Income Requisitions Stipends Workers Compensation Retroactive Pay Auto Allowance Grants Bereavement Jury Duty Severance Reporting Time Worked Hourly Employees: Hourly employees are required to record their time worked and paid time off in mytime. Hourly employees must approve and submit their time cards electronically at the end of each period. Salaried Employees: Salaried employees are required to record their time on an exception basis, which means that they are only required to record their paid time off in mytime. Exempt employees must approve their time at the end of each pay period, whether paid time off is recorded or not. Faculty: Faculty employees are not required to record their time worked or paid time off. They are paid by contract, and thus any time worked and exception reporting is not tracked by the university. mytime mytime is an electronic, web based time keeping software program utilized by employees to record time worked and paid time off. This software is provided by Worforce, the university s third party timekeeping vendor. The software is maintained by Workforce. A select group of client system administrators at LMU are designated and are responsible for such items as installing software updates, payroll processing functions and customer service routines for employees. These administrators are limited to Payroll Department personnel and specified information technology personnel. The Director of Payroll Services establishes and approves all client system administrators in the software program. Software updates for mytime are provided by Workforce. Employees can inquire in Payroll and Human Resources departments regarding training for mytime. In the training class, they will receive their login ID. Employees login to mytime using a system generated user ID and user defined password. The user ID is the same user ID generated by the Information Technology Department for network access. Each individual user creates a unique password after they receive a temporary password that is a default for first time users. IDs are maintained by the Human Resources system administrator, but passwords are not. If an employee forgets their password, the system administrator can reset the employee s account with a temporary password, which will then enable the employee to create a new password. Each pay period, an employee will enter hours worked or paid time off. Hourly employees are required to record their in and out times for each day they work as well as any paid time off. Salaried employees are required to record only paid time off. By each pay period deadline date, all entries in mytime must be approved by the employee and submitted electronically to their immediate supervisor in order to be paid.
8 SUBJECT: Page 8 of 14 The Sr. Payroll Coordinator performs a sign off on the applicable payroll period in mytime, on the specified time card due date, and pulls the file created from mytime that will be used to pay employees. Once the payroll is signed off, no further entries can be made to that pay period by users. Any late time entries will have to be submitted via the amendment process in mytime. Faculty Contract Pay Faculty employees at the University are paid according to a contract approved through Human Resources. These contracts can either be annual or semester based. Full time Faculty are paid according to an annual contract. Part time Faculty are paid according to a semester contract. Full time Faculty contracts are paid on a per pay period basis according to the number of pay periods listed in the contract. Part time faculty contracts are paid according to the number of pay periods in the applicable semester for which the contract is for. Full Time Faculty Contract Types There are three types of full time faculty contracts currently in effect: 24 payments. The contract divides the annual contract amount by the number of pay periods in the semi monthly pay frequency (24). The contract begins with the August 31 st paycheck and ends with the August 15 th paycheck of the following year. 18 Equal payments. This contract divides the annual contract amount by 18 pay periods beginning August 31 st and ending with the final payment on May 15 th of the following year. 18 Lump payments. This contract pays the annual amount in 19 payments. 18 equal, semimonthly installments beginning August 31 st through May 15 th of the following year, plus one additional lump sum check for the remaining 6 semi monthly installments on May 15 th of the following year. Religious Payroll All religious payroll employees (Staff and Faculty) are paid on a bi weekly frequency and are paid one week in arrears in alignment with the regular bi weekly payroll calendar. Religious employee s wages are exempt from taxation provided they have submitted a Vow of Poverty form from their community. They also receive a benefit allowance that provides them with the employer related costs of their benefits to afford them the opportunity to obtain benefits in the marketplace. Some employees choose to obtain their benefits through LMU. Report Lost, Damaged or Stolen Paychecks In the event a check is lost, stolen or damaged, the Payroll Department must be notified immediately at (310) or The Payroll Department will verify that the funds have not been cashed and request a stop payment. A 5 day waiting period applies to insure the funds have been returned to the university before a replacement check can be issued. If a lost, stolen or damaged check is discovered to be cashed fraudulently, the Payroll Department will initiate an investigation into the matter and a replacement check will not be re issued until the funds have been returned. Direct Deposit Returns and Reversals Direct deposit returns generally occur when the money being wired to an employee s account through normal payroll processing is sent back to the university, due to an invalid bank account or routing number. When this happens, the university will be contacted by ADP via . The Payroll staff will then research the invalid account information and contact the employee for updates or corrections if needed. A manual check will be issued to the employee for the returned wages, once the funds have been received by the university.
9 SUBJECT: Page 9 of 14 In some cases, if the time frame for reversing a direct deposit has passed (5 business days), the Payroll Department will need to request a direct deposit return after wages have been deposited into an employee s account in error. The Payroll Department will notify the employee, and if necessary, a manual check will be issued. Direct deposit reversals are generally initiated by the Payroll Department in the event of an incorrect payment to an employee. If necessary, a manual check will be issued to an employee for the correct wages. Stale Dated Checks Paychecks are negotiable for six months from date of issue. Stale dated checks should be returned to the Payroll Department for reissue. Funds from checks not cashed after 1 year from date of issue must be remitted to the State of California Unclaimed Property Bureau. Paycheck Deductions There are two types of paycheck deductions; mandatory and voluntary. Mandatory deductions are those that the Payroll Department is required to collect as regulated by governmental agencies. Voluntary deductions are those requested by the employee. Mandatory Deductions. Include but not limited to; state income tax, federal income tax, local income tax (CA SDI), FICA contributions, garnishments, tax levies and wage orders. Voluntary Deductions. Include, but are not limited to deductions for; retirement, credit union, medical/dental insurance, life insurance, flexible spending accounts, LMU campaign, LMU campus recreation, voluntary wage repayments, loans, promissory notes, direct deposit, rental agreements, parking, flexi dollars, S dollars, housing loans, loan forgiveness, computer loans, united crusade and miscellaneous items. Voluntary deductions require written authorization from the employee. Tax Compliance The Payroll Department is required to collect various taxes mandated by federal, state, and local governments. This is accomplished by withholding the required amounts from employees wages and timely paying them over to the appropriate governmental unit. The university taxes all wages paid to employees based on their form W4 and DE4 information. For taxation on various forms of payment, employees can contact the Payroll Department or review the chart listed on the LMU Website. Withholding Taxes The Payroll Department is required to withhold income taxes from wage payments to employees. To determine the proper amount of income tax to withhold from wages and other payments, withholding allowance certificates are required to be completed by each employee upon hire. These withholding allowance certificates provide the basis for calculations for withholding. An employee may not specify to withhold percentages or flat dollar amounts on any withholding certificate. Federal Withholding. The federal withholding allowance certificate is the Form W4. A Form W 4 must be kept on file by the Payroll Department for each employee. If the employee does not provide an original, complete, valid, signed W 4, the Payroll Department must withhold as if the employee were single with zero withholding allowances. Verbal or other written instructions are not enough to establish an employee s right to withholding allowances. Employees may file a new W 4 form whenever the number of allowances they are entitled to increases or they feel they are entitled to claim exempt from withholding. A Form W4 can be obtained from the Payroll Department, the LMU website or on the IRS website;
10 SUBJECT: Page 10 of 14 State Withholding. The state withholding allowance certificate is the Form DE 4. A Form DE 4 must be kept on file by the University for each employee. If the employee does not provide an original, complete, valid, signed DE 4, the Payroll Department will withhold according to the information on the employee s W4, or if that is not available, as if the employee were single with zero withholding allowances. Employees may file a new Form DE 4 whenever the number of allowances they are entitled to increases or they feel they are entitled to claim exempt from withholding. A Form DE4 can be obtained from the Payroll Department, the LMU website or on the EDD website; An employee who currently claims exempt from withholding must submit a new Form W 4 or DE 4 within 10 days after realizing that his or her claim of exemption is no longer valid because the employee will have income tax liability in the current year. Social Security and Medicare Taxes Employers and employees both pay taxes required by the Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) to fund two federal government benefit programs: Social Security and Medicare. Social security is comprised of Old Age and Survivor s Insurance (OASI) and Disability Insurance (DI), and Medicare benefits are provided by the Health Insurance (HI) program. The employee share of social security and Medicare taxes is withheld from wages and matched by the employer, which then pays both shares to the federal government. The social security tax rate is 6.2% and the Medicare tax rate is 1.45%. There is also an additional Medicare tax rate of.09% on wages over $200,000. State Disability Taxes The California State Disability Insurance program provides temporary benefit payments to workers for non work related disabilities. The SDI tax provides State Disability Insurance (SDI) and Paid Family Leave (PFL) benefits. Paid Family Leave is a component of SDI and extends benefits to individuals unable to work because they need to care for a seriously ill family member or bond with a new minor child. The SDI is a deduction from employees wages. The Payroll Department withholds a percentage for SDI on a specified wage base paid to each employee in a calendar year. The Employment Development Department establishes what the tax percentage and wage base will be for that year. Student Taxation Student employee pay is subject to federal and state income tax withholding and is reported on Form W2. Work performed in California is subject to withholding and reporting to California, regardless of residency status of the student. Registered degree seeking students do not pay FICA (Social Security and Medicare) taxes and California Disability Insurance if they are enrolled in 6 units or more. Paying Non Registered Students Students who are working but are not enrolled for a given quarter must be treated as temporary employees. Wages paid during this period are subject to FICA (Social Security and Medicare) taxes and California Disability Insurance. Pay Advances The university does not issue pay advances. Payroll Error Correction Methods It is the employee s responsibility to review their pay stub each payday for accuracy. If discrepancies are found, the employee must contact the Payroll Department immediately. The Payroll Department corrects paycheck errors in one of two ways; payroll adjustment or manual check. In the case of overpayments to employees, a payroll adjustment is typically made on the employee s check in the pay period following the pay check with the error on it. In the case of underpayments to employees, a payroll adjustment can be made as in the case of overpayments (retroactive pay will be added to their regular paycheck), or if it s
11 SUBJECT: Page 11 of 14 a financial hardship for the employee, a manual check for the retroactive pay can be generated. Both types of error correction methods ensure that the employee s wages are accurate for W2 purposes. Overpayment of Wages All overpayments should be brought to the attention of the Payroll Department as soon as possible. Overpayments made to a current employee will be taken from the employee s wages on the following paycheck, unless the employee agrees to reimburse the University prior to the next payday. Overpayments made to a former employee should be reported to the Director of Payroll Services, who will coordinate the collection efforts. Termination Pay An individual s final paycheck must include the total amount of salary or wages owed as of the date of termination. This includes all payments due, including accumulated, unused vacation leave, less authorized deductions. A live manual check is issued for all termination payments as these checks may not be direct deposited. If the university initiates the termination, or if the employee initiates the termination and gives at least 72 hours notice of the termination, the final paycheck must be given to the employee on the date of termination. When an employee initiates the termination and gives less than 72 hours notice of the termination, the final paycheck is due to the employee within 72 hours after termination. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, an employee who quits without providing a 72 hour notice shall be entitled to receive payment by mail if he or she so requests and designates a mailing address. The date of the mailing shall constitute the date of payment for purposes of the requirement to provide payment within 72 hours of the notice of quitting. W2 s Form W2 is used to report wages paid to employees and the taxes withheld from those wages for a calendar year. The form is also used to report FICA taxes to the Social Security Administration. W2 s are required to be distributed to employees by January 31 st of the year following the year the wages were earned. Paper W2 s are mailed each year to the employee s home address before the January 31 st deadline, and the same W2 information is available for each employee on ipay. The Payroll Department will provide copies of W2 s for employees up to four years. Employees requesting earlier copies of W2 s will need to obtain this information from the IRS by completing form 4506 Request for Transcipt of Tax Return. This form is available on the IRS website: The university does not charge a fee for copies of W2 s. Requests for copies of W2 s will either be mailed per the employee s instruction or will be available in the Payroll Department for the employee to pick up in person. The university will not fax copies of W2 s. Payroll Reporting The university has various internal departments and external vendors and regulatory agencies that it submits payroll information to on a regular basis. Internal Department Reporting. There are various departments across the university that require specific payroll reporting on a per pay period, monthly or annual basis. This reporting is required for purposes of budget monitoring, research and evaluation. All reports are distributed securely and to only authorized employees. Any files sent electronically by are password protected.
12 SUBJECT: Page 12 of 14 External Vendor Reporting. There are several external vendors that require specific payroll reporting on a per pay period, monthly or annual basis. These external vendors include state and federal regulatory agencies, credit unions and employee benefit vendors. This reporting is required as per state or federal regulation and as per contractual agreement with the third party vendor. All reports are distributed securely and to only authorized recipients. Any files sent electronically by are password protected. Subpoena for Payroll Information On occasion, the Payroll Department will receive a subpoena for payroll information for an employee. Each subpoena is handled in conjunction with the Human Resources Department. All confidential payroll information is reported only to the authorized individual(s) noted on the subpoena. Income Verification Requests All income verification requests are done in writing. The Payroll Department will not give out income verification information for any employee without a signed authorization agreement from the employee, approving the inquiry. Employee Payroll Confidentiality The Payroll Department upholds stringent confidentiality when releasing employee information. Only the employee may obtain information regarding their payroll account. No unauthorized persons may obtain payroll information on another employee without the written or verbal consent of the employee. If the consent is verbal, the employee must give his/her consent directly to the Director of Payroll Services, and provide proof of identification (ie: verify employee specific information on their account). Late Timecards All time data must be entered in mytime and approved by the employee and their supervisor by the designated timecard due dates. Any timecards that are received or approved after the payroll processing deadlines, will be processed on the following pay cycle. Late New Hire Paperwork Employees are hired on specific dates each month as designated by Human Resources. If the paperwork for these new hires is submitted to the Payroll Department after the time card due date, a manual check can be issued at the employee s request. Otherwise, the employee will be paid any retroactive wages on the following pay date. Leave of Absences Leave of absences are processed according to company policy as specified in the LMU Staff Policy Manual issued by Human Resources. Upon notification by the Human Resources Department, the Payroll Department will either coordinate wages with California State Disability payments or utilize paid time off benefits as per the university s leave of absence policy. Garnishments A garnishment is a legal order to withhold a specified sum from an employee s wages to satisfy a debt or fulfill a court order. Depending upon the agency that initiates the garnishment, there are a number of different terms that also may be used to refer to withholding an employee s wages. For example: Levy is used by the Federal Government. Earnings Withholding Order is used by the State of California Wage Assignment is used by the Sheriff s Department, Child Support Agencies, District Attorney, and Family Support Divisions.
13 SUBJECT: Page 13 of 14 Upon receipt of a garnishment order, the Payroll Department will notify the employee before beginning to garnish wages. The Payroll Department will send the employee copies of all required paperwork, and alert him/her about when the garnishment will begin. After the required waiting period (as defined in the garnishment order) has been observed, the Payroll Department is required to deduct a portion of the employee s salary earned from future paychecks until the terms of the garnishment order have been satisfied (i.e. the debt has been paid) or the garnishment has been withdrawn. The terms of the garnishment (i.e., the amount to be withheld each pay period) is defined by the taxing agency or firm/person named as plaintiff in the order. Only the issuer of the garnishment has legal authority to modify payment terms or withdraw the garnishment order. Recordkeeping There are several different agencies that regulate payroll recordkeeping requirements; Internal Revenue Service, State of California and the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor. Each of these agencies has different recordkeeping requirements, ranging from 2 years to 4 years. It is the policy of the Payroll Department to keep all payroll records for ten years after the termination date of all inactive employees. All records older than ten years are securely destroyed by a third party document destruction company.
