The EDCOE Payroll unit provides services to ensure salaries and benefits for EDCOE employees are paid timely and accurately. To facilitate payroll processing and maximize resources for our diverse educational programs, we collect time records, keep up-to-date on bargaining unit contracts, maintain and monitor leave balances, and compute payroll and adjustments including deductions and retirement contributions. We ensure benefit vendor payments are completed timely and reconcile liability accounts. We also maintain payroll records and files, responding to inquiries from employees and various agencies.
The department is responsible for the monthly salary payments for all persons employed in programs operated by the El Dorado County Office of Education and the school districts served by EDCOE. Additionally, the department is responsible for fringe benefit payments to vendors, salary deductions for retirement, fringe benefits and other voluntary deductions authorized by the individual employee, vacation and sick leave accruals, and other payroll related reports.
