POLICY STATEMENT

POLICY

For classified employees, approval of the provost, vice president, dean, director, or department/division head is necessary to authorize work performed beyond normal working hours.

To comply with legal requirements, compensation for extra hours actually worked in excess of 40 hours in any workweek must be made by providing compensation at time-and-a-half of the regular rate no later than the end of the next pay period.

In no case shall premium pay for overtime and holiday leave be pyramided or duplicated.

It is expected that professional/administrative employees' working hours, duties, and responsibilities to the university may vary. Such variations are not a basis for additional pay (PER-4.02 Hours of Work).

RELATED INFORMATION

An accurate record of all hours worked must be maintained daily and weekly by each classified staff. Overtime hours should be reported to the Payroll Office on the time report.

Compensation for hours worked above an employee’s standard hours, up to 40 hours in a workweek, will be provided using straight-time compensation.
