Employees will be paid in accordance with the County of Greene's approved payroll policies; and employees are encouraged to use Direct Deposit for payroll disbursement. Employees will receive voucher statements for official record of payment for hours worked and payroll deductions.
Accurately recording time worked is the responsibility of every employee. Federal and state laws require the County of Greene to keep an accurate record of time worked in order to calculate employee pay and benefits. Time worked is all the time spend on the job performing assigned duties. All employees are required to document their hours worked on Kronos Time and Attendance System.
All non-exempt employees are required to accurately record the time they begin and end their work day, as well as the beginning time of each meal period. All work time shall be recorded on the day such work was performed.
No employee, supervisor or manager may require an employee to inaccurately report time worked. Altering falsifying, tampering with time records, recording time on another employee's time record, or other violation of this policy may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.
The Count of Greene issues paycheck bi-weekly and reserves the right to correct errors or deduct obligations due the County by an employee with a written explanation to the employee.
The law required the County of Greene to make certain deductions from every employee's compensation. Among these are applicable federal, state and local income taxes. The County of Greene must also deduct Social Security taxes on each employee's earnings up to a specific limit that is call the Social Security "wage base.". The County of Greene matches the amount of Social Security taxes paid by each employee. Payroll deductions may include, but are not limited to:
Federal Withholding Tax
Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA)
State Income Tax
Local Wage Tax
Local Services Tax
The County of Greene takes all resonable steps to ensure that employees receive the correct amount of pay in each paycheck and that employees are paid promptly on the scheduled payday.
Hours of Operation:
The regular work week for all County offices, not including the Greene County Prison, shall consist of thirty five to forty (35-40) hours Monday through Friday with a one-hour lunch break. Lunch periods will be so scheduled that the office will remain open during the entire normal work day. Employees shall be entitled to one paid break period of fifteen (15) minutes during their regular work day. Some departments may have non-standard work hours required work beyond the normal work day of 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, and Monday through Friday. Work times are established by individual Department Heads in conjunction with the Chief Clerk based upon work related activities. Whenever an employee is delayed in reporting for a scheduled work assignment, he/she shall contact his/her supervisor in advance if possible.
Family and Medical Leave (FMLA):
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requires covered employers to provide up to twelve (12) weeks, or twenty-six (26) weeks, of unpaid, job-protected leave to "eligible" employees for certain family and medical reasons.
To be eligible for FMLA leave, an employee must have been employed by the County of Greene for at least twelve (12) months and must have worked at least one thousand two hundred fifty (1,250) hours during the twelve (12) month period preceding the beginning of the leave. The County of Greene uses the "rolling method," which means that it will measure the twelve (12) month period backward from the date the employee’s second FMLA leave is scheduled to begin.
Job Protection and Health Benefits: While on approved FMLA leave, eligible employees will have health benefits maintained through the County of Greene’s group health plan as if the employee had continued to work instead of taking the leave. Employees who are granted an approved FMLA leave must arrange to pay their share of premiums to the County of Greene in their absence.
