Guam – The students of Guahan Academy Charter School may be experiencing an academic delay, but some GACS employees faced their own delay as well in the form of a payless payday last week.

According to Joseph Limtiaco Cabana, the Finance Officer of GACS, some employees did not receive their paycheck on time.

Cabana says this is largely due to allotment delays and not an error on their part.

He adds that despite the delay, the payroll funds were promptly received the following afternoon, and it mostly affected the employees enrolled in direct deposit.

“Our payroll has gone as processed; we were just waiting for the releasing of the allotment of our request. As you know, our allotment is approved by GDOE and then submitted to DOA for funds available,” Cabana said.

He added, “The funds were released Friday afternoon, but some of [the funds] were paid because we have some new teachers that we have a special way to process their check, but some for some, their clearance wasn’t cleared till Friday.”

This is the second reported incident of a payless payday for some Guahan Academy Charter School employees.

The last reported payroll delay occurred in February according to PNC files.

Former GACS Board Chairman, Terry Debold attributed the delay to a 12 hour error in processing that should have taken place three days prior to disbursement.

Similar to the current delay, the payless payday only affected employees enrolled in direct deposit.
