In the United States, business owners have the option of paying their employees on either a weekly, bi-weekly (every other week), semi-monthly (twice a month), or monthly basis. While
it is more common for hourly employees to get paid weekly or bi-weekly, salaried employees usually receive their paychecks semi-monthly or even monthly. The payment frequency should have no effect on the total gross pay for the employee. Employees like to get paid more frequently; however, it is more costly to do so because there are costs associated with processing a payroll. Some of these costs include printing checks, direct deposit costs, and the time spent by an accountant or owner to calculate the net pay. Nevertheless, it is important to balance the wants of the employee with the wants of the business to avoid any conflicts.
