Group 7 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 7. 

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. On June 29, 2018,  you will receive your last monthly paycheck if you teach summer classes.  For Fall ’18 semester, you will receive your first paycheck on September 14, 2018 for worked performed August 16-31.  You will receive your next paycheck on September 29, 2018 for work performed September 1-15.
