Out-of-Cycle Pay Increase
Anytime that an employee’s salary increases (except in cases where someone is assuming a brand new position), a "Salary Adjustment Outside the Annual Merit Cycle" form is required to be approved through the provost’s office. Even if the unit does not report to the Provost Office, the Individual Salary Adjustment form still needs to be reviewed by their committee.
Supplemental Pay is administered by the Office of the Provost.
Refer to the Academic Faculty and Administrative Professional Manual for:
- Definition of Supplemental Pay
- Permissible Activities
- Non-Permissible Activities
Forms, including the following, are posted on the Provost's website:
- Supplemental Pay Authorization
- Honors Thesis Advisors' Supplemental Pay Process
- CSFS Supplemental Pay
Academic faculty are exempt from the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
Generally, administrative professionals are considered exempt from the FLSA overtime provisions providing they earn a weekly salary of at least $455.
Do not record daily work hours for faculty and admin professionals exempted from the overtime provisions of FLSA. Departments have an obligation, however, to ensure that the job requirements and work schedules, if applicable, are met.
The "suspend assignment" status may be used for temporary employees who work only one semester per year. Suspending an assignment prevents the employee from receiving pay while not teaching, and makes it easier to reappoint them for the semeseters that will be worked.
Leave Without Pay
If leave must be taken when a regular or special employee has no accrued leave to use, they are required to take leave without pay (LWOP) which must be preapproved on the Request for Leave Without Pay form through the Provost’s Office (view the approval flowchart).
The LWOP request form is not required if the person is going on leave due to a Family Medical Leave-related reason.
