Non-Exempt Employees Can Choose Leave or Pay for Their Overtime Hours
If, as a non-exempt employee, you made an election in the past and you do not want to change your election, you do not have to do anything. If you want to continue to receive pay for any overtime earned, you also do not have to complete a form. However, if you would like to change your election from receiving pay to receiving leave or receiving leave to receiving pay, please complete an Overtime Leave Agreement Form and submit it to the Payroll Department no later than Tuesday, September 2.
Unfortunately this deadline is firm and we cannot accept forms after that date. Please remember that an election commits you to your choice for one year until the next open enrollment period. This means that if the you elect leave accumulation you will receive leave and not pay for any overtime worked during the next academic year.
Please contact Catalina Wheat at 3.2751 if you have any questions.

Additional Leave Hours
Just before winter break, the Governor granted an additional 4 hours of holiday leave for Tuesday, December 31, 2013. Because Mason was already closed for winter break, the 4 hours have been added to eligible employee’s leave balances as a special flex holiday. The hours can be used through December 24, 2014.
