When a warrant is issued, federal and state income taxes are withheld and forwarded to the Internal Revenue Service, Franchise Tax Board, Medicare and Social Security on the employee's behalf. Miscellaneous deductions, such as garnishments and deferred compensation (TSAs/403Bs, etc.), may also be withheld and forwarded on the employee's behalf.
So, if an employee is paid in error and the State Controller's Office is unable to recoup the deductions forwarded on their behalf then, the employee will owe the net amount plus any deductions taken from that warrant.
Complete a stop payment request form at the Payroll Department in Sierra Hall, Room 103. Payroll will forward the request to the State Controller's Office for processing. If the warrant has not been cashed, a replacement warrant will be issued. The request may take up to 4 weeks to process.
These types of pay are processed on an ongoing basis. As Payroll receives the timely and accurate electronic transactions (in PeopleSoft) and supporting documents, they are processed.
