Payroll Policies

As a new hourly employee, you may not begin working until all necessary paperwork has been completed. This includes providing your original Social Security card or a receipt from the Social Security Office that a request for a card has been processed.

  • Tampering with WebClock, your timesheet, or any other means used to keep track of an employee’s work hours or schedule is grounds for immediate termination.
  • Class 5 hourly employees (Rutgers full-time students)
    • Cannot work more than 20 hours in one (1) week when classes or exams are in session.
    • Cannot work more than five (5) consecutive hours without taking at least a 15 minute unpaid break. You must clock out for your break.
    • Cannot work more than 35 hours in one (1) week during the summer or during holiday breaks or intersession when classes or exams are not in session.



Distribution of Pay Checks
The pay cycle covers a two week period; beginning on a Saturday and ending on a Friday. (This cycle changes periodically – refer to the payroll schedule during holiday and early cut off pay periods.) Here is a link to the hourly payroll schedule.

Paychecks are distributed every other Friday during the month.  Direct deposit is available to all hourly employees with an established savings or checking account. If you are interested in having your paychecks directly deposited to your bank account, see your supervisor for instructions.

If you do not have direct deposit your paycheck can be picked up at Alexander Library in the Administration office on the first floor behind the Reference Desk.  Please see Lorraine Slavik.  You must have your drivers license and/or student ID with you.
