HANDBOOK FOR SUPPORT STAFF


SECTION 2: WAGES AND HOURS
2.4 OVERTIME AND HOLIDAY PAY

Overtime is paid for time worked in excess of 40 hours in one work week. (Note: Only those hours for which you are paid are counted in the 40 hours. If you have unpaid hours, such as unpaid sick or unpaid personal, those hours are not included in determining overtime pay. Paid hours, including paid illness, paid vacation, funeral leave, etc. are included in the calculation of overtime pay.)

Most employees are not required or permitted to work overtime. However, you may be expected to do so by your supervisor under certain circumstances. If your supervisor requires or permits you to work in excess of 40 hours in one work week, you should report these hours and you will be paid at one-and-one-half your hourly rate for them. Hours must be reported in the time period worked.

If you work on a College holiday you will be paid time-and-one-half your normal hourly pay rate for the hours you work. This is in addition to any holiday pay you would have received had you not worked on the holiday. Please note that this policy does not apply to those offices that are required to remain open on several designated holidays. In those cases, you are eligible to a floating holiday in exchange for time worked. Refer to the "Holiday" section (4.3) in this handbook for the list of offices that remain open.
