Payroll Updates: Labor Day 2019

worker labor day

On Monday, September 2nd, we will celebrate Labor Day (the first Monday in September) to honor all of us working folks! Labor Day commemorates the creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to celebrating the achievements of American workers. So in case no one’s told you recently, you are amazing, and all the work you do is appreciated and valued!

Though we hope you’ll take time throughout the first week in September to cheer on your team and thank them for their contributions, we also have a slightly more practical reason for writing today. We want to remind you that since Labor Day is also a banking holiday, you may need to do some additional payroll prep next week before your much-needed rest day.

Both Southland Data Processing and the Federal Reserve will be closed on September 2nd in observance of Labor Day. Because of this, transfers will be pushed back a day for check dates on or after the holiday. Direct deposits will also not be live for payrolls with check dates on September 2nd.

For your employees to receive their pay by September 2nd, you should:

  • Change your check date to Friday, August 30th
  • Send your payroll by 2:00 PM PT on Wednesday, August 28th

Other affected check dates that will need to submit early:

  • Checks dated Tuesday, September 3rd – send payroll by 2:00 PM PT on Thursday, August 29th
  • Checks dated Wednesday, September 4th – send payroll by 2:00 PM PT on Friday, August 30th

We recommend you always check the Transfers section on your Payroll Summary report, which has the exact transfer amounts and dates.

As always, our team is here to help with any questions you have about your payroll or check dates. We’ll always pick up the phone, so don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions.

Wishing you and yours a restful and enjoyable Labor Day!
