Important information about your pay

Ensuring people are paid accurately and on-time remains a priority. 

2021 Pay Schedule

The 2021 pay schedule is available on the Finance website. Payslips are available to view in Workday 24-48 hours in advance of the payment date.

Early payroll deadline

The payroll deadline to enter and submit time (both absences and hours worked) for December 12 to 25, 2021, is Tuesday, December 21, 2021. 

Managers must approve the time submitted by Wednesday, December 22. Payroll will be processed on December 23 for the December 31 pay date.

Preparing for holiday and calendar year-end deadlines

As we near the end of the calendar year, here are some helpful reminders and deadlines. 

Vacation carryover and sick time

Check your 2021 vacation balances and carryover in Workday. As a reminder, the maximum carry-forward into 2022 is 10 days.

Enter vacation, sick time, and other absence entries including corrections for 2021 no later than Friday, January 7, 2022. (Managers must approve by Monday, January 10, 2022.)


    For information about CUPE 2950 banked overtime, please refer to the respective Collective Agreement.

    Christmas leave

    The leave available depends on your employee group. Visit the Christmas leave page for more information, and read the UBC Bulletin about Paid leave for staff between Boxing Day and New Year's Day.

    If your employee group is eligible for Christmas leave, you don’t need to request time off over the holiday break (December 25, 2021 to January 4, 2022) in Workday. Note: December 24 is considered a regular working day, not a holiday or half-day.

    Visit the HR website for information about Vacation Leave Information and Statutory Holidays.
