FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How and when do I submit my Orion timesheet?
When will I get paid?
Employees are paid on a bimonthly basis with payroll being processed through the 15th and the last day of the month, after all employee hours are logged in and submitted. To stay consistent with the contract invoicing environment, our work week goes from Saturday through Friday. Payroll run on the 15th of the month will be deposited on the 21st. Payroll run on the last day of the month will be deposited on the 7th.
What if I need to take unscheduled time off (emergency or sick day)?
It is the employee’s responsibility to inform both your On-site team lead as well as the Orion Consortium management office when you are going to be either late or out for the day.
How do I request PTO?
Vacation hours will be communicated, scheduled, and approved, using the rules of your team lead/manager on-site, and at least 4 weeks before your vacation to Orion Consortium. This request and approval must be in writing. You must submit your holiday and vacation requests in advance, first to the Orion office and then, after it has been approved, to your EA/CSRA manager.
