Compensatory Leave Reminder

Have you earned compensatory leave? Make sure you are aware of the compensatory leave limits and expirations:

  • Employees are limited to 96 hours of accrued compensatory leave
  • Per State Policy 3.10, accrued compensatory leave expires one year from the pay period in which the hours are accrued, regardless of the 96-hour limit
  • Compensatory leave may not be used once hours expire or lapse

    You can review your leave balance by visiting Patriot Web. If you have questions, please email

    Overtime Election Enrollment

    From August 1, 2020, to September 4, 2020, all non-exempt employees (i.e. employees eligible for compensation for any time worked over 40 hours in a week) can choose how they want to receive overtime compensation.

    Overtime eligible employees can choose to receive overtime compensation in one of two options:

  • Pay (initial default option)
  • Leave

    Do I Have to Make a Change?

  • If a non-exempt employee has made an election in the past and does not want to change the election, no action is needed
  • If a non-exempt employee wants to continue to receive pay for any overtime earned, they do not have to complete a form

    How Do I Make a Change?

    If the non-exempt employee would like to change their election from pay to leave, please:

  • Complete an Overtime Leave Agreement Form
  • Submit the form to the Payroll Department at payroll@gmu.edubefore Friday, September 4, 2020(due to processing, this deadline is firm and Payroll cannot accept forms after this date)

    Elections are a one-year commitment and can only be changed during this open enrollment period. For example, if the non-exempt employee elects leave accumulation, they will receive leave, and not pay, for any overtime worked for one year.

    Please contact Catalina Wheat at for questions.
