Posted on Oct 19, 2021

Viewing Your Paystub Online

Hello from the payroll desk!  HHF pays its employees on a bi-weekly basis through direct deposit.  Using the Dayforce web application, your current and past earning statements are available for you at your fingertips on the earnings screen and selecting the earning stub you want.  Did you know your earning statement appears in the same format as a traditional printed pay stub?   You can print your earning statement using the print button.  Using the arrow buttons on the fly out page you can easily navigate to past statements.  Some basic items on your earning statements: regular hours, Stat pay, premium pay and vacation pay.  You will also see items such as tax deductions, benefit deductions (if applicable) and net pay.  Click here for a sample view of a pay statement.

You also have access to your earnings through the Dayforce App.  The mobile earnings preview is for your convenience as a quick preview of your earning.   It is not meant to replace the web browser version of our earnings statement.  Either way, employees have quick, easy options to view their bi-weekly earnings at their convenience.

Musculoskeletal Injuries

Did you know Musculoskeletal Injuries (MSI) are the second most prevalent personal injuries that affect Canadian workers?

The Government of Alberta defines MSI as: an injury or disorder of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and other soft tissues. (e.g. sprains, back pain, arthritis)

Having an MSI can prevent us from working safely, lead to long recovery times and prevent us from enjoying the activities we love on our personal time.

Prevention of MSI can improve our productivity and well being on and off the job. For resources on how to avoid these injuries, check out these helpful resources from the Government of Alberta: https://ohs-pubstore.labour.alberta.ca/musculoskeletal-disorders
