How does Payroll work?

We get our checks through a payroll company (no direct deposit-just physical checks) and then have to deposit them ourselves. Does payroll deduct the funds from the companies account for my paycheck when the check is sent out? So before I deposit the check. Or does it take it out of the companies account when I deposit the check? I am just worried about it not clearing. Thanks for the help!!
