January Pay Day Consultation

Thank you to all those who responded to the consultation on moving the January pay day a week earlier! 

Nearly a thousand people responded of whom 76% were in favour of the proposal, 8% against and 16% didn’t mind either way.  Given the overwhelming support, it has been agreed that – on a trial basis – January pay will be paid into bank accounts on Friday 26 January 2018, 5 days earlier than would normally have been the case. 

Because of the Christmas and New Year break, and the start of the new term, January is a busy month for payroll changes, and therefore managers should be prompt in providing information to payroll for the earlier cut-off date of 11 January 2018. 

A review will be carried out after the January payroll has run which will include consideration of a number of other suggestions which were made in response to the survey.
