University of Colorado employees who are paid monthly will receive their June paycheck on Monday, July 3. There is no change for employees who are paid biweekly.
The shift from CU's normal monthly payroll, completed at month's end, stems from a 12-year-old state directive, which delays all monthly paid state employees' June pay to the first business day in July. Monthly employees will be paid on the last day of July for the July pay cycle, as usual.
Why does June's pay day fall on the first business day in July?
In 2003, Governor Bill Owens signed into law Colorado Senate Bill 03-197, which eliminated one of the state's 12 monthly pay cycles and delayed all monthly paid state employees' June pay to the first business day in July.
