1. NONEXEMPT EMPLOYEES
1.1 When nonexempt, full-time employees are required to work hours in excess of the standard 40-hour workweek, they are entitled to compensation for such overtime.
1.1.1 Employees will be compensated for overtime by granting the employee compensatory time off at the rate of one and one-half hours off for each hour of overtime worked.
1.1.2 Where granting compensatory time off is impractical, employees will be paid for the overtime at a rate equal to one and one-half times the employee’s regular rate of pay. This option is available in limited circumstances and only with the approval of the appropriate vice president, except as permitted in paragraph 1.2.
1.2 University Police officers are the only exception to the above rule. Officers earn overtime and are compensated by paying at a rate of one and one-half times the officer’s regular rate of pay. Police officers work extra-duty on a regular basis and are unable to take compensatory time off without jeopardizing the safety of the University campus.
2. EXEMPT EMPLOYEES
Exempt employees are not eligible for overtime payment or compensatory time off. Full-time exempt employees are expected to work a minimum of 40 hours per week in fulfilling the requirements of their positions.
System Regulation 31.01.09 Overtime prohibits nonexempt employees from accruing more than 240 hours of compensatory time.
