Timesheet guidance during the University closure due to COVID-19

All non-exempt staff members on the semi-monthly and bi-weekly payroll schedule should continue to complete their timesheet for all hours worked.  Your total weekly hours of 37.5* should be written in the weekly total box on the timesheet with a notation regarding the COVID-19 University closure.  Timesheets should continue to be turned into your Supervisor at the end of each pay period.  Any hours worked between 37.5-40 in a given workweek should continue to be paid at the regular hourly rate and any hours over 40 should be paid at time and one half.

*The Police department will continue to be paid for 40 hours each week.  Part-time employees will be paid based on actual remote working hours or if not working remote based on an average of hours typically worked.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  All non-exempt employees are required to maintain an accurate record of time worked.  As required by the Fair Labor Standards Act, any hours worked over 40 during a given workweek are to be paid at time and one half.  Timesheets are to be maintained in departmental records for a minimum of three years.
