Non-Exempt Employees Can Choose Leave or Pay for Their Overtime Hours
It's time for non-exempt employees (i.e. overtime eligible for all hours over 40 worked in a week) to initiate or change their election regarding how their overtime is to be handled by the Payroll Department. All non-exempt employees have the option of being paid for their overtime (which is the default) or to accumulate their overtime as leave.
If you are a non-exempt employee and have made an election in the past and do not want to change your election, you do not have to do anything. If you want 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 please complete an Overtime Leave Agreement Form and submit it to the Payroll Department no later than Friday, September 5.
Unfortunately this deadline is firm and we cannot accept forms after Friday, September 5.
Please remember that an election commits you to your choice for one year until the next open enrollment period. This means that if you elect leave accumulation you will receive leave and not pay for any overtime worked during the next academic year.
