Those Mysterious Pay Check Stub Leave Totals

The leaves listed on your pay stubs show the YEAR TO DATE hours accrued and used for holidays, sick and vacation. The figures shown use your hire anniversary date as the start of the year - not the calendar year. If you are being paid for leave time on this pay check, this is shown under the Earnings Section. The leave year is set up this way as your vacation hours accrual rate will increase after certain anniversary dates. See the JPSYS Employee Manual's Paid Leave section for more information or contact HR.

Who To Contact

The company contact list can be downloaded from the Bamboo HR Files tab in the 'New Employee' sub-folder. It contains both important JPSYS internal and vendor contact info.
