Your Paycheck

Pay Information
  • The Arnold Group (TAG) offers direct deposit to the financial institution and account of your choice as well as a paycard option for employees that do not have an existing relationship with a financial institution or simply prefer to use a paycard as your ACH payroll option.
  • On payday you can access a non-negotiable pay voucher through TAG WebCenter which displays the same information as a paycheck stub. Your net pay will be deposited into your desired bank account.
  • Although we make every effort to pay employees the correct amount each payday, an error may occur. You are responsible for verifying the net pay amount shown on your pay voucher before you make withdrawals or write checks against the account to which your net pay is directly deposited. You are responsible for any overdraft or other service charges resulting from incorrect net pay being directly deposited.
  • If you are overpaid or underpaid, you are to immediately notify your TAG Staffing Specialist. In the case of an overpayment, you must follow all instructions for returning the excess funds to Company.
  • Depending on the cut-off date for each payday, there will be a lag of at least one (and perhaps, two) paydays until your pay is directly deposited to the account you designate.
  • Your direct deposit instructions will remain in effect until you change them. You must complete a new form to change any part of the direct deposit instructions you have previously provided. If you close your financial account or change your mind about where you want your net pay directly deposited, remember to allow for the lag between when you provide direct deposit instructions and when those will take effect. If your pay is deposited to a closed account, you must deal with that financial institution in order to recover funds. Be aware that it can take as long as ten days for you to recover those funds.
Pay Advances
  • The Arnold Group does not offer any advancement of pay not yet earned. Earned pay will be paid out on the next scheduled pay period. Pay periods run Monday through Sunday and paydays are the following Friday.
