Hearts manager John McGlynn has assured his players that they will be paid before they host Motherwell in the Scottish Premier League on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.
McGlynn and six of the club's highest earners did not receive their salaries on schedule as the Gorgie club failed to pay their entire squad on time for a second successive month.
He said: "The latest is that everyone will be paid by the end of play Friday.
"We've just been told that, so I've not had any reaction from the players, but I'm sure they'll be happy."
September's breach triggered a transfer embargo under new Scottish Premier League regulations, while the SPL board will discuss the situation at Hearts at a meeting on Monday.
Hearts will take the opportunity at Tynecastle to show their support in calling for an end to racism in football and society.
Captain Marius Zaliukas said: "Heart of Midlothian is pleased to play its part in the fortnight of action. There is no place for racism or sectarianism in football and we wholeheartedly support all the efforts being made to eradicate such behaviour from our game."
