This line includes the following items:

– Your Total Hours Worked for the bi-weekly pay period. (This includes all hours worked: Regular Hours, Shift Hours and Overtime Hours.)

– Your Base Rate

– Your Total Regular Pay for the Bi-weekly Period (Total Hours Worked x Base Rate)

2

This section represents your Paid Time Off, Maryland Sick and Safe Leave, and Reserved Sick Leave. (If you are represented by a Collective Bargaining Agreement, this section may look different.)

3

All of the codes in this section are new. These lines are all the premium pay you earned during the bi-weekly pay period.

This section includes:

– Hours eligible for premium pay for each premium pay category

– Flat hourly rate for each premium pay category

– Pay amount calculated for each premium pay category (premium pay hours x flat hourly rate)

NOTE: Hours listed here are included in the “Regular” line above. They are not in addition to those hours.

For example: if you worked 50 hours in one week of the pay period you would be paid the overtime rate of 1.5 times your regular rate for 10 of those hours. Here’s how they would appear on your pay stub:

– 50 hours paid at base rate

– 10 hours paid at half your regular rate

– = 10 hours paid at 1.5 regular rate

4

On call hours and pay are listed here.

5

All of the pay codes in this section are from your organization’s previous pay practices.

Note: because previous pay codes were not standard across the System, your previous pay codes may look different than this pay stub sample.

6

This calculation totals the numbers in that column.

Note: Because all hours eligible for premium pay are listed under Regular and listed under the premium category, the hours total here are more than your total hours worked.

7

This section displays your Deductions, including Taxes, Benefits and Garnishments.

8

This line shows the amount of pay you receive after all deductions.

9

This section lists how many hours of paid leave you have available.

FAQs

ONE UMMS PACHECK FAQS

Your new paycheck will look different than what you’re used to. Our payroll team has taken great care to ensure all team members are paid accurately based on the new pay practices. If your pay seems more than or less than you thought it would be, here are a few reasons that may explain why:

  • You had additional compensation added to your base pay because our analysis showed the new shift differential is less than the previous shift differential.
  • The new shift differential and/or on call rates have been applied.
  • Majority rule was applied, which means that if you worked across more than one shift zone, you were paid the rate of the shift where the majority of your hours were worked.

First, talk with your manager and specifically identify your concern. Your manager has access to your individual data and can help explain how the new pay practices have affected your paycheck. If you have further questions, reach out to your HR Business Partner.

The way we show your overtime compensation has changed but be assured you are being paid for your overtime hours. If you worked 50 hours in one week, all of those hours are shown in the top line where you are paid your base rate. Then, all hours eligible for overtime – in this case, 10 – are shown in the overtime line where you are paid an additional half (.5) of your regular (FLSA) rate for that week.

The “TOTALS” line calculates all of the numbers in that column. That means that the hours listed here will often be more than the total hours you worked in that pay period. This happens because all hours eligible for premium pay are listed under Regular and listed under the premium category.

If you have received premium pay associated with a pandemic policy or another bonus program, it will appear in the premium pay section of the paystub with its own pay code.

Your base rate can be found on the first line of the paystub under the “Rate” heading.

Our new PTO program includes all paid leave that was previously called vacation, personal, sick and holiday time. On the new paystub, your paid time off is labeled in three categories: Paid Time Off, Sick and Safe Leave, and Reserved Sick Leave (“UMMS Sick” in People Planning). If you are represented by a Collective Bargaining Agreement, your time may be listed differently.
