Important: It is critical you carefully follow all the steps outlined in the article below while inputting and saving your banking information within the HRMS.

Employees who have previously input their banking information incorrectly, have experienced up-to an additional two weeks delay for their pay deposit.

Note: Due to a current system limitation, the system will not display any error messages to warn you of any incorrect input and it will allow you to save the information as-is. This will result in delayed pay as your banking information will be rejected when the payroll team tries to submit your pay deposit to your bank.

If you would like assistance with inputting your banking information or/and would like to ensure accuracy, please contact us at the HR Support Centre and we will help you input your banking information into the HRMS.
