Overtime and Comp Time

The university has two types of overtime for eligible staff employees: straight and premium. Employees may receive either compensatory time off (comp time) or pay for overtime worked.

Conditions

  • Only non-exempt employees are eligible for overtime. Exempt and non-exempt titles are identified in the Staff Title and Pay Plan.
  • Overtime work must be approved in advance by your supervisor.

Rate

  • Up to 40 hours of work in a given workweek is compensated at the straight time rate (1 hour for each hour worked).
  • More than 40 hours of work in a given workweek is compensated at the premium rate (1.5 hours for each hour worked).
For more information, speak with your supervisor, the HR contact in your department, or the Employee Relations Specialist for your Vice Chancellor area.
