Monthly ... advance available ( for whatever amount is wanted...as long as it's not for more than hours worked) halfway.

Advance is then deducted from Monthly wage.

Every Friday. Always a week behind, that way I have a week to due payroll BUT I usually do it Thursday evening! That paying a week behind does help me when I go on vacation though.

pay period starts on Friday to Thursday. Then you are paid the following Thursday for that week. We pay every week, becasue like one guy said before... some of these guys live pay check to check and request weekly pay.

Week to week. Monday to Saturday, paid following Thursday. We use Paychex So all i have to do is add up the hours on Monday morning, call paychex with the totals (takes about 30 sceonds) and they deliver the checks to us Thursday morning.

We pay every other Friday, so 26 pay periods a year. Payroll runs 12:00 am Monday through 11:59 pm Sunday.

They get paid the following week on Friday. So, typical pay period is Mon thru Friday, Mon thru Friday - get paid the following Friday.

We use Paychex for payroll processing. Report hours on Monday, get checks Tuesday or Wednesay, give them out on Friday.

No exceptions... you don't get paid late, you dont' get paid early. No complaints either!

When we went from one week to the two week pay period - there was some grumbling. Regardless, it's the same amount of money either way. Besides, I think employees do better with every other week than paying every Friday. They tend to budget their money slightly better. No reason for me to be a crutch for them.

From an administrative standpoint, paying every two weeks just makes things easier, simpler, and cheaper.

You are cutting the number of times you handle the process in half, you probably will pay less for processing if you use Paychex or ADP or other service since you will use their services less often.

Once your employees get used to being paid biweekly they will be ok with it.

I don't have employees, but from dealing with people and other businesses payrolls at the accounting firm, every 2 weeks is my preference.
