Exceptions to regular pay, including premium pay for overtime, shift differentials, or work on holidays is paid on a two-week lag. This occurs because exceptions that occurred during the second week of the pay period are reported after your pay is calculated.
Your pay for regular hours worked is calculated for the second week of the pay period and is adjusted for any exceptions in the following paycheck.
