Group 2 Information

CMU currently has eight categories of employees on different payroll periods and systems.  Therefore, the upcoming payroll change will affect each group differently.  Given this variety, you can see how standardizing employee pay across the institution will increase efficiency and reduce payroll processing time, which will save money and result in improved service.  It will also mean that employees are paid more frequently, that new employees may not have as long a delay before their first paycheck and that employees can see their current and correct leave balances through MAVzone.

Below is an explanation of how the change will affect you (and your group).  You are in Group 2. 

You are currently paid on the last working day of the month for work performed the first through the last working day of the month.  Effective July 1, 2018, CMU will transition to a semi-monthly payroll.  Next year, you will continue to receive a monthly paycheck through June, with the last one for June received on June 29, 2018.  On July 31, 2018, you will receive pay for the period July 1-15 or about one-half of your monthly pay. The other half, for worked performed July 16 – 31, will be paid on August 15, 2018.
