Payroll deadlines

In order to ensure that all staff are paid in a timely way, the Human Resources Pay team have a monthly schedule by which various documents must be received in order to be included in that month's pay run. Please ensure you are familiar with your particular contract type and that the relevant documents reach the Human Resources Division on time.

To be paid in a particular month, it is essential we have the following documents:

Contract: The Department employing a new staff member needs to forward the contract for employees to HR by the contract deadline. We will then process the contract and notify the employee to come in and sign it by no later than the payroll deadline to guarantee payment of the month in which you wish payment to start. All other paperwork needs to be completed by this deadline as well.

For GTA contract queries or other hourly-paid contract queries, please contact

Timesheet: Completed and authorised timesheet for hourly paid staff (electronic timesheet) – This must reach us by the Payroll deadline for the month in which the payment is to be made. If you have questions about the authorisation process for your department, please contact your Department or Centre Manager. Please note: Timesheet hours should be paid a month in arrears and cover calendar months (i.e. 1st – 31st). For example, in November, only hours relating to 1 October – 31 October (or earlier) shall be paid. 

Claim for payment: Authorised claim for payment for casual staff - This must reach us by the contract deadline for the month in which the payment is to be made. Authorised claim for overtime must reach us by the payroll deadline.
