Emergency Cheque Request

The Salaries Section is able to make emergency cheque payments outside of the normal monthly salary BACS transfer only in exceptional circumstances.

Such instances may be :

A contract issued to an employee after the official start date, for example, start date 1 April - contract received by the Salaries Section and employee in May, thus causing unnecessary hardship to the employee.

A timesheet submitted by an employee to a department who has failed to forward the payment claim to the Salaries Section, thus causing unnecessary hardship to the employee.

An administrative error caused by a Department or the Salaries Section, thus causing unnecessary hardship to the employee.

Exclusions

An employee who has commenced employment too late to be included in the normal salary run will be processed the following month, for example, an employee who starts 27 May and the contract is received in Salaries after the cut off dates for processing, will receive the 5 days pay in June's normal run.

Overtime/extra payments omitted by Department or submitted to Salaries after the cut off dates for processing.

Any emergency cheque requests must be made in writing to Mrs SE Williams, (Head of Salaries & Pensions) detailing the reason, contact telephone number or email/postal address and signed by an authorised signatory within the department.

Employees/Departments will be contacted by the Salaries Section when the emergency cheque is ready for collection from Newport Road.
