The University will pay a shift differential to non-statutory regular full-time and regular part-time non-exempt employees not covered by a collective bargaining agreement who are required to work certain defined shifts. The purpose of the shift differential is to compensate those employees for the inconvenience of working non-standard hours.
Guidelines for Shift Differential
- To be eligible, an employee must be scheduled for, and must work, one full shift or more in which at least four hours of the shift fall between the hours of 6 PM and 6 AM.
- If eligible, a $0.20/hour premium will be paid to the employee for all hours worked on the scheduled shift.
- An employee who is asked to work extra hours immediately before or immediately after his/her regularly-scheduled shift will not receive the shift differential unless their normal shift meets the criteria in item 1 (i.e., even if the extra hours worked fall between the hours of 6 PM and 6 AM).
- An employee who is called in (Call-Back Pay or Split Shift) will not receive the shift differential unless their normal shift meets the criteria in item 1.
- If the employee’s schedule changes and s/he no longer works a shift that meets the criteria set forth in item 1, the shift differential will be removed.
- Employees are responsible for noting on timesheets those shifts to which shift differential applies.
- Supervisors are responsible for reviewing and signing approval of shift differential on timesheets for those employees eligible for the shift differential as per the rules outlined above.
