Dining Services Payroll Deduction Delayed

Due to technical difficulties during the uploading of Dining Services payroll deduction charges to the Banner information management system this month, charges made between Aug.16 and Sept. 15 will not be deducted from September paychecks. Instead, charges for that period will be deducted from October paychecks along with any charges that are made from Sept. 16-Oct. 15.

Supervisors are asked to be sure to communicate this information to staff who use payroll deduction for Dining Services charges but don't have regular access to their university email account.

Dining Services apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciates employees' understanding.

If you have questions, please feel free to email diningservices@unco.edu or call 351-2652.
