SubSection: COMPENSATION

Master List Section: Human Resources

  1. Institutional Regulations
    1. Regular Faculty employees (Teaching Faculty, Counselors and Librarians) are exempt from the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA) because they are paid on a salaried basis and meet the FLSA professional exemption test.
    2. Regular Faculty employees shall receive overload pay when they exceed a full load in a given term.
    3. Regular part-time Faculty employees may be scheduled for an overload during either Fall or Spring semester of an academic year but not during both terms. They may also be scheduled for an overload during Summer term.
  2. Procedure
    1. Regular full-time Faculty overload occurs when an employee exceeds 16 ECH’s in Fall or Spring term or 11 ECH’s during Summer term.
    2. Regular full-time Librarians overload shall be paid from 16 ECH’s in Fall or Spring term or 11 ECH’s in Summer term. Regular full-time Counselors overload shall be paid from 15.5 ECHs in Fall or Spring term or 10.5 ECHs in Summer term. All other Regular full-time Faculty overload shall be paid from 15 ECH’s in Fall or Spring term or 10 ECH’s in Summer term.
