Christmas Pay Processing Deadlines

Published: Monday 8th December 2014

Due to the University closure over the Christmas period, there is a need to adjust the normal deadlines for the submission of salary payment documentation, such as casual staff time sheets and other salary claim forms. To enable timely salary payment over the Christmas period, it is important that all staff and supervisors are aware of the following deadlines for submission of documents to Human Resources.

Deadlines for salary payments in December/January:
