Maybe I am thinking this too hard, but I was curious if you get paid before or after the time you worked? And it takes another week to get paid for previous weeks worked?

FYI - I am paid every 2-weeks

Sorry it probably doesn't make sense?

I think there is usually a week lag time.

You are paid for time worked after you work it. There is a week after the payroll period closes for them to cut the check.

After, with a week's processing time.

thanks Gents - i figure it was much, not sure why i am over thinking it. i got money direct deposited today and i assume since it's t-day, they are doing it early instead of tomorrow.

My company pays bi-weekly.

We receive our checks/direct deposits on the Friday before the Sunday that ends the pay period.

Look at your pay stub. It should show the dates for which you are being paid.
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 6:21:59 AM EST
I get paid for 80 hours straight time on the Friday the pay period ends.

Any overtime, ect is paid the next pay period, so two weeks later.

I get paid on a 1 week lag after the time sheets get approved and OT is on the off weeks (biwkly pay dates)

When I was in academia salary was paid once a month.

I changed jobs a year ago and at this gig it's bimonthly. I prefer bimonthly pay.

No

Bi-weekly is every 2 weeks

Bi-monthly is every 2 months.

Semi-monthly is twice a month.

Get paid bimonthly, and always a pay period behind. One thing I can say about my employer, is I'm never not paid.
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 6:49:02 AM EST
Bi-weekly means every other week, bi-monthly means every other month. Common misnomer. If you are bi weekly you were paid for working one and two, but are paid in week 3. I pay all my people weekly so trailing week only.

I decided to be smart and check some dictionaries. The answer is... it depends

I get paid twice a month. Both "bimonthly" and "biweekly" can apparently be used to mean either "every two [time units]" or "twice per [time unit]".

ETA dictionary links:

biweekly: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/biweekly

bimonthly: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bimonthly

As long as the money shows up on a regular basis I'm cool with either definition

We've had a pay freeze for the past 2 years so I've been getting compensated in the rears.

Hi there! CFO here (in charge of P/R among other things).

When speaking P/R, the check date governs all. Taxes are based on that date, who gets paid what is based on that date, and the processing of P/R is based on that date.

Typically (I know of no other instances personally) you are paid on the pay date for the previous pay period. The previous pay period does not include processing time.

For instance, our company pays weekly. That is, employee's receive a check every Friday for work performed from the previous Wednesday through Tuesday. As we use pay cards, it takes two days to process and get paid on Friday. So, work Wednesday through Tuesday, turn in time on Wednesday morning, get the pay on Friday.

And that is the gist of how most company's do it. I know of no cases of being paid prior to working except maybe a salesman's draw or something. Which is a horrible way to work IMO. "Take whatever you need! But you better hope you sale enough to cover it over this next month!" Some people may not mind it but man, I couldn't handle living that way.

Yep.

Have worked under a bunch of different arrangements (including my own business - I would get paid last)

Only thing that is a cardinal is getting paid late.

paid after. takes a week to process.

paid every two weeks here.
