    Long-term assignments

    Payment is made through direct deposit on the 25th of every month, unless it falls on a weekend or holiday.  If so, it will be paid the Friday before the weekend.  Pay is received the month following your assignment. For example, if you work substitute assignments in September, you will receive payment for those assignments the following month in October.
