Time Off Benefits
Hourly employees do not earn PTO – for any time off, employees need to notify their direct client supervisor and Synigent representative before the workday starts, and on each consecutive day of absence.
Employee expenses need to be submitted by the end of the first week following the month in which expenses occur. Expense checks will be disbursed on the 15th of the month.
Employees are paid on the 15th and last day of the month.
Synigent offers Direct Deposit to both salary and hourly employees. Employees need to submit an Authorization Form and VOIDED check. Our Payroll Service will submit a ‘dry run’ to the bank to assure the appropriate account is accessed, and once completed the remaining paychecks will be by Direct Deposit. Employees will receive a mailed voucher with earning details.
Employees not using Direct Deposit will be mailed a paycheck on the paydate. Hourly employees are paid for the previous pay period; therefore, they are paid on the last day of the month for hours worked on the 1st through the 15th of the month.
Pay Advances – Synigent does not provide advances on unearned wages to employees.
If payday falls on a holiday or weekend, paychecks will be issued on the last business day prior to the holiday or weekend.
