Because of the nature of work, employees may be asked to work overtime on weekends or holidays or additional hours during the regular workday and are expected to comply with such requests. Overtime compensation is paid to all nonexempt employees at one and one-half times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week.


If you are nonexempt, you must receive authorization from your manager before working overtime.  After you have worked overtime, you must enter it on a timesheet no later than the day after it is accrued.  Overtime pay is based on actual hours worked. Time taken for lunch or dinner is not included as time worked for purposes of computing overtime.  Time off on holidays, sick leave, vacation leave, personal leave or any leave of absence will not be factored in as hours worked when calculating overtime.


Compensatory time may not be given in lieu of cash overtime in the private sector; however, supervisors may utilize flexible scheduling to keep employees from going into an overtime situation.  For example, if an employee has worked 4 nine-hour days in a work week, the supervisor may ask the employee to leave at noon on Friday to insure the employee does not cross over 40 hours in the given work week.


This policy applies to all employees of the University.
