Thanksgiving Closings

SOUTHWESTERN PAYROLL WILL BE CLOSED NOVEMBER 24th AND NOVEMBER 25th

Once again, the holiday season is upon us, and we would like to take a moment to remind our clients of the Thanksgiving holiday banking and payroll schedule.

Even though our offices will be closed Friday, we will have limited staff available if you need to pick up your payroll.

Thursday, November 24th
Thanksgiving:
– UPS and FedEx are closed
– Banks are closed
-There will be no banking activity
Southwestern Payroll is closed

*ACH, Wire Services, Direct Deposits, Deliveries, Check Dates and Processes may need to be changed.*

——————-

Friday, November 25th
Day after Thanksgiving:
– UPS has normal service
– FedEx has limited service
– Banks are open
Southwestern Payroll is closed
There will be no Courier deliveries on this day, but payrolls can be picked up from 9am to 1pm.

*ACH, Wire Services, Direct Deposits, Deliveries, Check Dates and Processes may need to be changed.*

If your check date falls on Thursday, November 24th, or Friday November 25th, you may need to contact us in order to coordinate your payroll processing for timely direct deposits.

While most customers are set up to automatically have pay dates that fall on Thanksgiving to be moved earlier, no automatic adjustments of check dates will be made for pay dates on Friday November 25th. Therefore, clients who wish to pay on Wednesday November 23rd MUST contact us in advance.

In general, all ACH, Wire, and Direct Deposit requests must have at least two (2) business days to be processed by Southwestern and your banking institution. Days on which banks are closed are NOT considered business days. Making adjustments now will ensure smoother processing during this busy time of year. Please contact your Payroll Specialist or our Support Department with any necessary changes as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, contact our support team at 918-388-3320 or support@swpay.com to ensure your requests are addressed as soon as possible.

Daylight Saving Time Ends November 6

A Friendly Reminder
This Saturday night, set your clocks backward one hour before you go to bed. Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. on November 6, 2022.

Why This Is Important for Your Business
Synchronizing clocks is no joke in business. It’s vital that everyone is on the same time whether you are a Web Input client or you use a physical time clock.

Be certain to inform your employees of the time change, and that your IT department sets your computer’s default time to change automatically on the scheduled date and time.

Note for Physical Time Clock Users
With the Daylight Saving change fast approaching, needed adjustments to your computer may be required. Some Time Clocks are equipped with a built-in feature to synchronize Date/Time via the Web, while others synchronize directly with your computers’ default Date/Time.

To ensure your clock will adjust to DLS accurately, it is important that your computer is set up to automatically adjust to DLS Time (Spring Forward – Fall Back) on this date at 2:00 a.m. These changes will ensure that any employee punching in or out after 2:00 a.m. on November 6th is accurately tracked with the correct time. Failure to verify these settings could cause inaccurate payroll calculations.

If you have any questions or concerns, or if you discover that your clock did not adjust for Daylight Saving Time, please reach out to our Support Teams at TLM@swpay.com or Support@swpay.com.

Bank Holiday: Columbus Day

Monday, October 10th is Columbus Day. This is a banking holiday and banks will be closed. Consequently, no direct deposits will settle or be initiated on this day.

If your check date is Monday, October 10th, Tuesday, October 11th, or Wednesday, October 12th, you may need to contact your payroll specialist in order to coordinate your payroll processing for a timely direct deposit.

Southwestern Payroll will be open.

The high cost of turnover

The most important investment you can make for your business is hiring the right people. A single bad hire can corrode team morale and accelerate employee turnover.

Plus, studies show the average cost to replace just one employee can be financially burdensome:

  • The cost to replace a $10/hour retail worker would be $3,328.
  • The cost to replace a $40k manager would be $8,000.
  • The cost to replace a $100k CFO would be $213,000.

Do you really have the time to find the right person?

Do-it-yourself hiring adds extra strain to your everyday obligations all while continuing to manage your “day job”, including:

  • Writing job descriptions
