Bank glitch blamed for school system employees who did not get paid
About 2,500 of the Rowan-Salisbury School System’s employees did not get paid as scheduled today.
Spokeswoman Rita Foil said the incident is due to a “glitch” with direct deposit at Vantage South.
“Our finance department is working very closely with (the bank) to have it rectified as soon as possible,” she said. “The bank understands the urgency and everyone all the way around regrets the situation.
“We’re hoping it will be cleared up today.”
Foil said teacher assistants, school food service staff and 10-month custodial staff have not been affected because they are paid mid-month.
The bank has pledged to cover any overdraft fees that employees incur due to having insufficient funds, Foil said.
The school system has notified staff of the issue through email.
Update: Foil said employees who bank with the State Employees’ Credit Union have started receiving their direct deposits.
