The University will be closed Monday, July 4th in observance of Independence Day, we want to remind employees and supervisors of the University’s pay practice regarding non-exempt employees who are required to work during a University holiday. Benefit eligible employees in non-exempt positions who are required by their supervisors to work on a holiday have a choice, in addition to regular holiday pay, of time-and-one-half pay or time off at a time-and-one half rate for hours worked, to be taken within the same pay period. Based on staffing needs, a department may require pay rather than time off. Part-time, Temporary, On-Call and Seasonal, non-exempt employees who work on a holiday will receive time-and-one-half pay. Exempt employees who are required by their supervisor to work on a holiday may take another day off during that calendar year.
For future reference, this policy is in the Employee Handbook on the HR website at http://www.wlu.edu/document/employee-handbook.
Listed below is how this time should be recorded in WebAdvisor for non-exempt employees.
Record actual hours worked under “Regular Hours” and under “Shift Hours” and select “Time & Half- Univ. Holiday” under “Shift Type.” If you did not work a full day, the difference of actual hours worked and your regular scheduled hours should be recorded under “Other Time Hours” with “Other Time Type” of “Univ. Holidays/Closings.”
If you have any questions, please contact Wanda Scott, email@example.com, Les Gearhart, firstname.lastname@example.org or Carolyn Deacon, email@example.com.
