The payroll system is where you typically find your pay stubs online or can request your paid time off.
There are typically two ways to find out which payroll provider your employer is using:
- Ask your HR department
- Find it on your pay stub
Asking your HR or Payroll department for your payroll provider
If you don't know what your payroll provider is or how to find your pay stub, the easiest way of finding out this information is to get in touch with your HR department and ask "Which payroll provider do we use here?" or "Where can I find my pay stubs online?".
Sample email template:
To: Your HR or Payroll Department
Subject: "Question regarding our payroll provider"
I am trying to find my pay stubs online. Can you please remind me of the name of our payroll provider and the link to where I can find my pay stubs online?
Finding the payroll provider on your pay stub
If you have a pay stub from the company you work at, you should see a payroll provider's company name somewhere on the pay stub. Large providers are ADP, Paycom, Paychex, Gusto, etc. (You can find a list of providers in the Citadel Bridge.)
In the example below you can see that the provider is ADP (highlighted in the top right corner).
