Your paycheck

It is the city’s policy and practice to compensate employees accurately and in compliance with all applicable laws. To ensure proper payment and that no improper deductions are made, employees are expected to review pay stubs promptly to identify and report any errors.

All employees are paid bi-weekly for all the time worked during the past pay period. Payroll stubs itemize deductions made from gross earnings. By law, the city is required to make deductions for Social Security, federal income tax, and any other appropriate taxes. These required deductions also may include any court-ordered garnishments. Payroll stubs will also differentiate between regular pay received and overtime pay received.

If there is an error in employees’ pay, the employees should bring the matter to the attention of their supervisor immediately so the city can resolve the issue in a timely manner.
