Pay Advance

A pay advance is a request for funds prior to the next scheduled pay date. In the event that an error has occurred in an employee's pay and/or payment is required immediately, a pay advance may be requested through the submission of a Manual Cheque Request form. This form must be authorized and submitted by the employee's department head and approved by Payroll before it can be processed. Advances are issued in the form of a cheque. When applicable, the amount of the advance will be deducted from the employee's future pay.

Issuing an advance is a multi-step process involving Accounts Payable and Payroll. Financial Services ultimately determines whether or not an advance is warranted. 

For more information on advances, please see the Payroll Manual Cheque/Advance Policy.
