How Payday is Determined

The Office of Financial Management in Olympia is charged with preparing the list of paydays per Washington Administrative Code 82-50-021. A list of pay dates is circulated to all state payroll managers in May of the prior year for review and comment.

After the comment period is closed, a list of dates is filed for amendment with the Code Reviser’s Office in Olympia and payroll managers across the state are notified of this action.
