  • You will have your photo taken for your identification badge during the hiring process. Don’t forget to wear your best smile.

Orientation

New employee orientation begins your introduction to the worksite(s), your new supervisor, and your co-workers. This Orientation is your information gateway into discovering more about Spokane County Library District. As part of this program, you will become more familiar with the District’s culture, values, the various community libraries we serve, locations, benefits, and much more.

Payroll

SCLD payroll is processed by our payroll staff located in the Business Office. Depending on the questions you have or the payroll information you need, the first line of contact is your immediate supervisor/manager.

Paydays

Paydays occur on the 10th and 25th of each month. Hours from the 1st through the 15th of the month are paid on the 25th and hours from the 16th through the end of the month are paid on the 10th of the following month. If payday falls on a weekend or holiday, the payday will be the preceding workday. Current Year Pay Date Calendar

Timesheets

The District uses electronic timesheets. Employees are responsible for completing their timesheet, and forwarding it to their supervisor for approval per the schedule established by the Business Office.

Direct Deposit

The District requires that all district employees participate in the direct deposit program. In this program, the employee’s net pay will be electronically forwarded to the employee’s account at the financial institution of their choice. The employee may either designate that their net pay be deposited to (a) checking account, (b) savings account, or (c) combination of both. The amount designated must be either 100% of the net pay, or a specific amount of dollars. If more than one account is requested for direct deposit, then the employee must designate which account is the “primary account” (the account that will always be processed first). When a specific amount of dollars is selected as a direct deposit option, it will be the default selection as the primary account. Note: It is expected that new employees without bank accounts are to have an account established within thirty (30) days of commencing work. Direct deposit funds should be available in an employee’s personal account(s) by 9:00 AM on the designated paydays. Pay stubs will be provided to the employees. The stubs will be either mailed to the address designated by the employee or forwarded to the employee’s primary work location prior to payday.

Court Ordered Payments

Spokane County Library District is responsible for the collection of all court ordered payments such as garnishments, child support payments, bankruptcy, IRS levies and creditor garnishments. If you see a deduction on your pay stub labeled garnishment, please contact the Business Office for more information.
