Reporting Hours Worked and Overtime
Each unit must provide, through Payroll Services, an accurate biweekly accounting of hours actually worked for all hourly employees.
Earnings Type - REG (regular base pay): Identifies the hours actually worked during a given pay period. Hours worked in excess of the individual's normal workweek should be reported as REG, or may be reported as overtime if hours are in excess of 40 hours per workweek.
