Payroll A to Z

  • Address Changes:

If you know you are moving, it is important to update your address information with Payroll.  This helps ensure you receive all your paychecks and tax documentation on time and at the proper address.

Current employees may update their mailing address on their own in ESS:

    • Personal Information>Move
    • Home = Mailing Address
    • Supplemental = Physical Address

NOTE: Be sure to send the auto generated email to Payroll so PERS (SOA Retirement & Benefits) can be manually updated.


Log into your ICMA account and update. ICMA link:

Past employees must update their address directly through Payroll.

  • Jury Duty:

When an employee receives compensation from the clerk of court for jury duty service, they must reimburse the CBJ if they were paid for their time away from work. If the jury service occurred on a day off, or during pre-determined  personal leave, no reimbursement to the CBJ is required.

Jurors are paid a daily rate. The daily rate amount should be turned over to the CBJ. The employee should restrictively endorse the check from the court by writing “Pay to the order of the City & Borough of Juneau” and signing their name on the back of the check. The check should be sent to Payroll or the Treasury Cash Office.
