Attention Employees: Your PayDay is Changing!

Attention all TUSD employees: Your Pay Day is changing. The district is switching from a Sunday to Saturday payroll workweek to a Thursday to Wednesday payroll workweek.

PayDay Info Flier for Employees (in PDF) | 2018 - 2019 Pay Period Calendar (in PDF)

Beginning July 1, 2018, TUSD will be changing its payday and payroll workweek. The State of Arizona has passed a law that requires all employees to be paid seven business days after the payroll week closes. Currently, it takes 10 days. To comply with this law, the district is switching from a Sunday to Saturday payroll workweek to a Thursday to Wednesday payroll workweek.

Because of this, your payday will be changing.

  • You will receive your REGULAR PAYCHECK ON JUNE 29, 2018
  • You will receive your REGULAR PAYCHECK EARLY, ON JULY 11, 2018

  • You will receive your REGULAR PAYCHECK ON AUGUST 3, 2018
  • You will receive your REGULAR BI-WEEKLY PAYCHECKS AFTER AUGUST 3, 2018

Partial Year Employees

If your start date is July 26 - August 10 (not summer pay), you will be paid on August 17, 2018, for days worked, then the regular biweekly schedule will resume.

See the Pay Schedule Flier for Employees (in PDF) for more information.

Enter Your Time by Wednesdays!

Don't forget! It is your responsibility to make sure all times are entered and approved by close of business Wednesdays or you will not be paid on time.
