Paid Leave Benefits

Sick Leave Bank – New employees are required to donate three (3) sick leave days in each of the 9th, 10th and 11th month accruals.  Please refer to your collective bargaining agreement for further information.

Direct Deposit

Direct deposit of your payroll check is available for all employees (excluding student note takers). With direct deposit, your net pay is electronically transferred into your personal savings or checking account. To participate, your bank, savings and loan association, and/or credit union must be a participating member of the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA), and you must complete Form CO-1040, Direct Deposit Authorization. After the Payroll Office has received the form, Central Payroll will send a pre-notification to your bank to verify your account. It takes approximately two (2) payroll cycles for your first deposit to be made to your account. You MUST notify the Payroll Office immediately if you have made changes to your account or if you wish to cancel. Failure to notify payroll when you close your account will restrict the availability of funds until they are returned from the bank to the State Comptroller.
