PY - Legal Settlements


This document includes the process to follow to get a legal settlement processed in HRS.

  • It must be determined if the settlement is WRS eligible.  Legal council is contacted if the Service Center is unable to make that determination.
  • A new W4 may be needed from the employee.  If so make sure it's entered before requesting the settlement check.
  • Determination as to how the check should be delivered to the employee.  It may not follow regular off-cycle processing rules.

Process Inputs

  • Email from requestor
  • Settlement agreement
  • W4 if applicable 

Process Outputs

Because of special process considerations all legal settlements should be done off-cycle. The department or institution HR Administrator should an email to the Service Center Payroll Manager.  Please include the following information.

  • All pertinent information that will be needed and isn't included in the settlement agreement.  This may include where the check should be sent after processing and turn around time for receiving the check. 
  • The settlement agreement
An off-cycle check will be processed according to our off-cycle processing schedule which is a Tuesday or Thursday check date.  The check will be sent with the other off-cycle checks unless it's specified that something different should be done with it.
