Our eight-week Covered Period ran from April 24 through June 19. The hours employees worked from June 14 through June 20 won’t be paid until June 26, but those wages were earned during the Covered Period. Can I claim that payroll, and if so, do I exclude hours worked on June 20 since it’s outside of our Covered Period?

First, the dates you cite for your Covered Period are incorrect. If your eight weeks began on April 24, the last date of your Covered Period is June 18, not the following day. To your specific question, yes, you can claim the portion of your final payroll that was incurred prior to the end of your Covered Period, meaning any wages earned from June 14 through the end of June 18. You cannot claim any wages earned beginning June 19.
