First 2020 Pay Date Moved From January 1 to January 2

The first scheduled pay date of 2020 is Wednesday, January 1. However, New Year's Day is a bank holiday, which means pay cannot be delivered on that day. In order for employees to receive their pay in the same tax year that it normally would be paid, the University will move this pay date to the following business day, Thursday, January 2. The University's standard practice is to move pay dates one day earlier if they fall on a bank holiday, except in this rare case when that move would change the tax year in which the earnings would be reported.
