CCS will withhold deductions required by law and all voluntary deductions authorized by the employee.  Deductions required by law are federal, state and local income tax, Social Security tax, Medicare tax, state disability, and unemployment tax.  These deductions are made automatically.  In addition, the employee may authorize voluntary deductions for health insurance, a tax-deferred annuity plan, and reimbursement accounts.  It is the policy of CCS not to make any salary deductions that are inconsistent with the requirements of federal or state wage/hour laws.

Pay Periods

Salaried staff are paid twice per month (semi-monthly / 24 checks annually) on the 15th and last working day of the month.

Hourly staff and work study are paid biweekly (26 checks annually).  When biweekly employees receive three paychecks within a calendar month, benefits are not deducted from the third pay of the month.

If the regular payday falls on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, paychecks will be issued on the last workday before the regular payday.

Online access to pay information is available through WebAdvisor.

Salaries and Wages

Salaries and wages are reviewed annually, based on the administrative staff member’s performance and on salary policies established each year by the Board of Trustees.  Based on performance evaluations, the department director makes salary and wage recommendations.  These recommendations are submitted to the President who considers and approves them in consultation with the appropriate Dean or Vice President.  CCS is committed, within the constraints of its budget, to recognizing excellent administrative staff performance through salary adjustments.  Poor performance may be recognized through low or, if appropriate, no salary increases.  Final decisions concerning salaries and wages are at the discretion of the College.
