This is to let you know that the State Controller has started processing the 3.5% general salary increases for CFA. The raises are retroactive to July 1st. Many employment records were "mass-updated" by SCO starting on Oct. 18th. Those employees on direct deposit should start seeing the money in your accounts any day now. Paper warrants and direct deposit advices are being grouped for distribution to the designated employees in each school/department. The first group of paper warrants and direct deposit advices will be available for pickup by the department designated employees at the Cashier's Office on Monday afternoon, Oct. 24th. The following employees could see a delay in receiving the retro. warrants/deposits:
- anyone with a change in employment status effective
Fall quarter such as:
In addition, there are a great number of retro. transactions that could not be mass-updated by SCO and will require "special" handling by the Payroll staff to generate payments. We estimate that there are between 400-500 of these transactions and they may take 4-6 weeks to complete. The retro. transactions are for: summer quarter faculty, summer session faculty, faculty with timebase changes between winter and spring quarters, faculty who retired during the summer, faculty who resigned during the summer, and any faculty that had an "August" settlement adjustment to their pay due to: pay docks, disabilities, late start appointments, faculty on sabbatical for Fall/Winter, or temporary department chairs for Spring quarter.
Some of you will see July and September only on
your retro. pay stubs that will be distributed on Oct. 24th. This probably
means that your August payment had an adjustment and that the retro.
pay will be delayed due to one of the above mentioned reasons. H.R.
is running reports to help Payroll identify those employees with missing
payments. With this large volume of "special" processing, we are asking that you
hold off calling the payroll staff with questions until the middle of
November when we hopefully will have a handle of what has and has not
paid. We will keep you informed when the "special" handling
warrants have issued. Thank you for your patience during this process.
