CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A plan to switch thousands of state employees from twice-monthly to biweekly pay will resume next month.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports (https://bit.ly/1p19on8) that the Enterprise Resource Planning Board - made up of the governor, treasurer and auditor - voted on Wednesday to approve the change.

The board had voted in November to put the second phase of the switch to biweekly pay on hold after some state employees complained that they will be shorted pay in the transition year. Legislative leaders say the new system overpays employees by providing an extra 27th paycheck roughly once every 11 years.

Auditor Glen Gainer says the change will eliminate timekeeping errors, and errors in calculating overtime and leave time.
