4. Printed paychecks to be discontinued Jan. 1

The university will discontinue providing printed paychecks and deposit statements to Marquette employees beginning Jan. 1 to help increase security and decrease costs.

It costs money and resources for Marquette University to print, sort and distribute checks and deposit statements. Electronic payments are also a more secure way of distributing payroll information because there are fewer people and fewer steps involved with providing that information.

Employees will still be able to view their pay statements through MyJob, as well as have access to more information and receive their statement sooner than through the paychecks and statements in their mailbox.

For more information contact Julie Laubenstein, payroll manager, at 8-7264.
