How is my rate of pay calculated?
All questions concerning staff rates of pay should be directed to Employment Services.
What are my tax withholdings?
Tax withholding is done in accordance with your W-4 Form, complete and submit a new one to make changes to your tax withholdings. Special rules apply to international faculty and staff.
For which holidays do I get paid?
Holiday pay is based upon benefit eligibility. Please refer to the Employee Handbook to determine whether or not you are benefit eligible. At the present time Macalester College provides ten paid holidays for each fiscal year.
