• If I exceed my sick and personal leave time, what will be done?

    Posted by:

    If you have exceeded all of your leave time, you will be docked for the amount of time over your earned leave.
    Example: If you exceed your leave time by five days, your pay will be docked for five days.

    The calculation for the docking is done as follows:

    •Annual salary divided by 200 days (if you are a ten-month employee) equals your daily rate
    •Your daily rate times the number of days you exceeded your leave time equals the amount      your pay check will be docked.

  • Should I use my last pay stub in December to file my income taxes?

    Posted by:

    The Surry County Public School's Finance Department does not advise this. Your final pay stub in December could be missing some important information that you would need in order to file your income taxes. There are times that additional monies need to be included on your W-2 that are not shown on your final December pay stub. Examples of this would be: over $50,000 life insurance, third party sick pay, etc. If these monies have not been received in this department by the date payroll is completed, these figures will be included on your W-2 but may not be shown on your last pay stub in December.

  • What are the procedures for handling garnishments served for employees?

    Posted by:

    When a garnishment is served to the Surry County Public Schools' Finance Department, we are, by law, required to adhere to the contents of the garnishment order. This applies not only to garnishments, but also to tax liens and child support orders. The finance department is not responsible for contacting any employee when a court order is received. There are times when we will contact an employee if the amount of the garnishment is small enough that the employee can pay it off. If we contact the employee alerting them to receiving a court order, the contact is done specifically for them to pay off the charges and get a release of the court order as soon as possible. Most cases require an immediate release document. If you pay off the court order and we do not receive a release, we will deduct from your pay check the maximum amount allowed by law to be deducted. ***If you are a ten-month employee paid throughout the summer, the garnishment will be deducted from your July and August checks unless a release has been received prior to June 10th.*** IT IS IMPERATIVE FOR YOU TO GET AN IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF YOUR COURT ORDER IF YOU PAY IT OFF.

  • What are the procedures for signing up for Direct Deposit?

    Posted by:

    We ask the employee to bring to us a COPY of a check from the bank you want your checks deposited to. Once we receive the copy, we will immediately enter the information into the computer. The first pay period after we receive your direct deposit information, you will receive a paper check while we research the information you have submitted. If the information we have entered is correct, your second payroll after we receive your direct deposit information will result in your having direct deposit and you will receive a direct deposit mailer from that point on.

  • Why does my annual W-2 show different wages than what is printed on my annual contract?

    Posted by:

    Employee contracts bear a fiscal year annual salary, July 1, __ through June 30, ____. Annual W-2 statements bear calendar year wages, January 1, _____ through December 31, _____. The two documents will not show the same amount of wages/salary due to the period of time covered by each document. If an employee wants to be sure their W-2 is correct, they can add the wages paid to them from January 1 through June 30 and add to July 1 through December 31.
