Per Diem Payroll
Per Diem Payroll
The Per Diem Payroll is a positive payroll for service rendered on a
per diem (daily) basis. It is a semi-monthly payroll processed by the
employee’s timekeeper/payroll secretary. Payroll checks are distributed
Deposit or mailed directly to the employee’s home. Daily rates
are contractual and F Status and Z Status rates are based on the
employee’s salary step and differentials up to step 4A. Direct
Deposit is available to all Pedagogues on the Q-Bank, Per Diem
and Per Session Payroll. Each Payroll requires a separate enrollment.
If you are a regular teacher and work per session you must complete a Direct Deposit
Enrollment for each payroll.
Types of Per Diem Service
Per Diem service refers to licensed pedagogic personnel serving on a
day to day basis in a school and/or any of its programs. Employees
serving on a Per Diem basis are commonly referred to as substitute teachers. The categories
of service paid on the Per Diem Payroll include:
Occasional Per Diem
A teacher assigned on a day by day as needed basis to fill occasional
vacancies due to a teacher absence. This employee is paid at a fixed
rate for each day of service.
Long-Term Per Diem (Z-Status)
An Occasional Per Diem teacher who works 30 or more consecutive days in
the same position covering the same absence becomes a long-term Per
Diem teacher. This individual receives salary at 1/200th of the salary
step (up to step 4A) that would be entitled on a full time basis,
instead of the occasional daily rate.
Non-attendance benefits are not available. Sick leave is earned at the
rate of one (1) day for each calendar month in which per diem
employment with legal holidays equal or exceeds twenty (20) days.
This applies to "F" and "Z" Status service. After serving sixty (60)
full days, the long-term per diem teacher will earn three (3) vacation
days and for each twenty (20) days thereafter one (1) additional day is
earned up to a maximum of 9 vacation days.
A per diem employee engaged for a full term but for less than 5 full
days per week (e.g., 2 days every week). The Full/Part Time employee
receives a salary pro-rated for the time worked at 1/200th of the
salary step (up to step 4A) that would be entitled on a full time basis.
This payroll for a per diem employee is generated semi-monthly for the prior month’s service. Checks are
distributed via Direct
Deposit or mailed to the employee’s home address. Inquiries
concerning payment should be referred to the school
secretary/timekeeper or the Regional Operations Center (ROC) where the
service was performed.
