Compensatory time is hours physically worked over 40 hours in a work week by non-exempt University employees. The extra hours worked accrue at time and a half. Compensatory time off shall not exceed a total of 120 hours (80 hours of actual work time) at any point in time and should be used in a reasonable period of time, generally within a twelve-month period from when accrued.
Overtime is hours physically worked over 40 hours in a work week by non-exempt University employees. The employee will receive compensatory time for the extra hours at time and a half unless overtime pay is approved, in advance, by the employee's budget officer.
When calculating overtime or compensatory time, fractions of hours of 15 minutes or more can be compensated for overtime and are to be reported in hundredths of hours. The following chart can be used to calculate overtime worked and to maintain an accurate daily record.
A normal day shift will fall entirely within the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Hourly employees who work a regularly scheduled shift of hours other than the standard workday may be paid a shift differential of $0.60 per hour during 2nd shift hours and $0.75 during 3rd shift for all hours worked. Employees do not receive shift differential pay for hours credited on any type of leave or holiday.
Use of Compensatory Time:
Use of compensatory time, as time off, is generally authorized instead of payment of overtime.
When an hourly employee is scheduled to work additional time that would
result in the employee's receiving overtime compensation (provided the
employee is notified in advance of the change), the supervisor may give
the employee equivalent time off, on an hour-for-hour basis, in the
workweek in which the additional time is worked and the time is taken at a
time agreeable with the supervisor. The supervisor should grant
compensatory leave on the date(s) requested unless doing so would unduly
interrupt the operations of the department or unit.
