WU announcement October 15

We have discovered that there is an issue with this week’s bi-weekly payrolls for several employees at both the University and Washburn Tech. For certain employees, the amount of Social Security and Medicare taxes withheld from their pay is slightly higher than it should be.

We are in the process of trying to determine why this has happened, and how to fix it. In the meantime, in order to make sure everyone receives their pay on Friday, we intend to pay classified employees the current (incorrect) amount. We will then resolve the issue, and “refund” the excess deductions to the affected employees on the October 31 payroll.

At this time, we do not think this issue impacts Friday’s student payroll.

Thanks for your patience as we work through this issue. If you have any questions, please contact me at [email protected].
