New Mexico Judicial Branch employees are paid bi-weekly. They enter
their own time into the Automatic Time sheet System (ATSS), the
new State of New Mexico payroll system. The Human Resource Division
trains employees in this process and functions as a ongoing resource
to the Judicial Branch for ATSS problem solving. The Human Resources
Division also mails out checks and advices to the Magistrate Courts
on the Wednesday following the pay period ending date.
Each Judicial Branch employee is provided with a calendar for the
year showing all the pay period ending dates and holidays. They
are responsible to get the ATSS time sheet ready for approval by
the supervisor before 9:00 a.m. the Friday before payroll runs.
Supervisors are responsible to train new court staff in the ATSS
