The first pay period for both hourly and salary employees will begin on the first day of each month, end the fifteenth day, and will be paid on the twenty-fifth. The second pay period of the month will begin on the sixteenth, end the last day of the month and will be paid on the tenth day of the month following. 

*** SPF Payroll Schedule 2014 now available (PDF) ***

Non-exempt employees are required to submit time sheets and exempt employees are required to submit level of effort forms. 

*** Note: Because all faculty are exempt employees, they do not earn overtime. Hourly rates may be used for calculation and timesheet purposes. Exempt Faculty submit their hours on a timesheet. ***

Submitting Payroll:

How to Avoid Common Mistakes


If you've ever submitted payroll through SPF chances are you've received at least one, “Payroll Issue” response email from our office. These reminders are a way for SPF to assist Payroll in processing timely and accurate timesheets. By filling our your timesheets completely and correctly you not only help Payroll process your
checks quicker but it also keeps SPF in compliance with labor laws. Based on the most common mistakes, here are some helpful ways to prevent errors:

* Write your HSU ID # on all payroll documents
* Remember to check the “certification” box above your signature
* Students: remember to check the “En­rollment Certification” box
* Clearly write your project name and number on all payroll documents
