SECTION 2: WAGES AND HOURS
2.1 PAY RATE, TIME RECORDING, AND PAY DAY
The Manager of Employment & Benefits will inform you about your pay rate, pay periods, and pay days.
** Staff Associates are paid on either a monthly or bi-weekly basis dependent upon position assignment. You should fill out your time sheet each day and have your supervisor sign it at the end of the pay period. Time sheets are due in the Office of Human Resources on the first work day following the end of each pay period.
** Staff Associates paid monthly are paid on the 20th of each month. When the 20th falls on a Saturday, checks are available on the 19th. When the 20th falls on a Sunday, checks are available on the 21st. You are paid for a full month even though you have not yet completed work for the month. Staff Associates employed on a monthly basis have one hourly rate during the Academic Year and another during the Summer Period. The different hourly rates ensure that monthly base pay remains the same from month to month even though the office schedule may change during the summer. Overtime is paid at time-and-one-half the hourly rate in effect when the overtime is worked.
** Monthly Staff Associate pay is adjusted in the month following the report of a variation from the normal schedule. The Human Resources Office uses your actual time worked as shown on the time sheet you submit each month to determine the amount of additions (such as overtime) or deductions (such as unpaid personal time) to be made to your next pay check.
* Plant Operations and Security employees are paid biweekly on an hourly rate basis. Hours are reported using the time clock.
Bi-weekly personnel, including part-time staff associates, receive pay every other Thursday for work performed and reported for the preceding pay period.
