Worker pay deposits delayed at West Virginia University

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — An unspecified glitch has caused a delay in employee paycheck deposits for more than 11,500 accounts at West Virginia University.

The Dominion Post of Morgantown reports that the paychecks weren't deposited as scheduled on Friday morning.

Rob Alsop, the university's vice president for strategic initiatives, said payroll information has been resubmitted to the state for processing, but that deposits would likely not occur until Monday.

WVU spokesman John Bolt said Saturday that 3,514 accounts did get paid. He says some employees' checks are split between several accounts.

The university is working with the state treasurer and banks in the hope that any overdraft charges related to the delayed deposits are waived.

Gov. Jim Justice's office said some state employees' pay was also not deposited on time, but it was unclear how widespread the problem was.


This story corrects to accounts instead of employees in the first paragraph and specifies that the glitch involved more than 11,500, instead of between 11,500 and 15,000 accounts.
