a.) Self Service General Instructions
2.) Select the Employee Summary Report
3.) Scroll down to the Leave Balances Section. Your current balance is the furthest right column.
Understanding your Paystub
City pay policies can be complex, particularly when employees are working overtime or recieving additional pay for assignments.
This pay stub may look as though has a total of 146 hours total. However, that would be incorrect. The actual worked on the pay stub is 85 hours and a holiday, which is counted toward overtime hours.
