How do holiday closures affect payroll processing, check dates and/or delivery?
follow the bank holiday rule for holiday closures – either pushing a day PAST
regularly scheduled check date or making the check date a day EARLIER than
usual. If the company will be open or closed for the holiday, the day
before and after will be chosen for live check delivery. Other options
include manual checks or same day pick up.
an example involving Thanksgiving. The holiday is always on Thursday with
most companies also taking Friday off. We ask the company to send in
payroll on Monday or Tuesday if they want checks dated and delivered by
Wednesday before the holiday. If they still want Friday delivery and check
date, we ask they submit Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday for Friday check date,
whatever is convenient for them. Some companies may still want Friday
check even though they will be closed. If they have paper delivery, that
would be delivered on Monday.
