The Web-based system, called Pay Advices Online, will provide employees secure access to detailed information pertaining to their pay. Employees will now be able to view and print their pay advices via Marynet. All information provided on paper advices – such as earnings, deductions, leave accrued, and benefits – will be available on Pay Advices Online one day prior to the scheduled pay date.
After May 1, Marymount employees will no longer receive a paper copy of their pay advice – it will be available only through Marynet starting on May 13. Those who have never used Marynet or are uncertain about how to log in should establish access as soon as possible. If you have problems accessing Marynet, contact Information Technology Services at ext. 6990. For questions about Pay Advices Online, contact the Payroll Office at ext. 1485 or 6992.
