VII- 6.10 - POLICY ON WORK SCHEDULES FOR REGULAR EXEMPT EMPLOYEES
(Approved by the Board of Regents on December 3, 1999,
EFFECTIVE January 2, and January 12, 2000)
I. PURPOSE AND APPLICABILITY
This policy identifies the work schedule requirements for
regular employees in Exempt positions.
II. SCHEDULE REQUIREMENTS
Employees in Exempt positions should be assigned a reasonable
work schedule. The work of employees in exempt positions is
not measured solely by the hours worked. Employees in
exempt positions are expected to work the hours necessary to
complete assignments on a schedule that satisfies the
requirements of the job. A full-time commitment typically
requires a minimum of 80 hours per bi-weekly payroll period.
Although not required and not an entitlement, a limited
amount of compensatory leave may be granted, with the prior
written approval of the institution CEO or designee.
Compensatory leave shall be used within one year from the
date it is earned. No compensation shall be paid for
compensatory leave that is unused at the time the employee
leaves university service, and such leave shall not be
restored upon reinstatement.
Consistent with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), USM
exempt employees will note on their timesheets "D"
(duty day) to record days worked.
Each Chief Executive Officer or designee shall establish
procedures as necessary for reasonable work schedules,
days worked and recording leave and shall submit a copy of
such procedures to the Chancellor. Such institutional
procedures may require additional reporting of information
as the Chief Executive Officer or designee may direct.
