Biweekly Employee Pay Dates

Duke University and Duke University Health System pays its non-exempt employees once every two weeks. Since biweekly employees are paid an hourly wage, their payments are based on the time submitted and paid in accordance with Duke University and Duke University Health System pay policies. Once a pay period has been completed and employee time submitted, the payments are processed by Corporate Payroll Services. Due to the processing time required, the payment is paid to the employee two weeks after the end of the pay period.

As an example, Employee A worked for 80.2 hours during the pay period of March 1 through March 14. On March 26, two week after March 14, Employee A will receive his paycheck for 80.2 hours of work. For pay period of March 15 through March 28, Employee A worked 85.1 hours. Therefore, Employee A will receive his paycheck for 85.1 hours of work on April 9, which is two weeks after March 28.

The chart below lists the pay periods and pay dates for biweekly employees. Also available for viewing is the Biweekly Schedule for Payroll Representatives (pdf).
