Group 5 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 5. 

You are currently paid a salary amount 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, hourly payroll consistent with your hourly position.  Next year, you will continue to receive a monthly paycheck through June. On June 29, 2018 you will receive your last monthly salary check for work during the month of June.  On July 31, 2018, you will receive pay for actual hours worked the period July 1-15 or about one-half of your monthly pay. The other half, for actual hours worked July 16 – 31, will be paid on August 15, 2018.  It is important to understand that after the transition you will be paid for actual hours worked during each pay period.  This means your pay will fluctuate based on the number of actual hours worked in the pay period.
