  • LAG Payroll - Pay type that is used for NYS agencies whose employees are paid on a lag basis; that is, the employees receive a check at the end of a pay period, as defined by Administration pay cycle for service performed in the 2 week pay period that began 4 weeks earlier than the check date and ended 2 weeks earlier than the check date.

    For example, if an employee is hired on the first day of an Administration pay cycle and is paid on a lag basis, and the dates of the employee's first pay period are Thursday, 4/10 through Wednesday, 4/23, the employee will not receive a check on 4/23. Rather, the employee will have to wait another 2 weeks to receive his/her first check. Therefore, the employee will receive his/her first check on 5/7 for service performed 4/10-4/23, since the employee will be paid on a 2 week lag basis. Likewise, if an employee that is paid on a lag basis is terminated on the last day of a pay period, the employee will receive his/her final check 2 weeks after the termination date for service performed in the 2 weeks immediately prior to the termination date.
