General Provisions

Employees are paid within the established “Minimum” and “Maximum” pay rates for their classification.

The hiring of individuals above midpoint of any range requires the advance approval of appropriate operating division Directors and the Director of Business and Legal Affairs.

Recently graduated student employees of ASUCLA are hired to professional positions at “Minimum” of the range. Exceptions require the advance approval of appropriate operating division Directors and the Director of Business and Legal Affairs.

An employee who is employed at 100% time shall not receive additional compensation for any work or services performed that are related to the employee’s current position, regardless of the source or type of payments. (Payment for overtime earned by a non-exempt employee and wage/equity adjustments are not subject to this restriction.)

Merit Increases

Regular status professional employees are eligible for merit increases based on performance review ratings and the availability of funds.

Regular status professional employees who have reached the top of their pay ranges are not eligible for merit increases.

Merit increases are normally awarded annually, effective July 1.

Depending on when an employee is hired during a review cycle, merit increases may be prorated according to the following schedule:

Hire Date: Merit Increase Effective Date: Merit Increase Amount:
July 2014 – November 2014 July 1, 2015 100%
December 2014 July 1, 2015 58%
January 2015 July 1, 2015 50%
February 2015 July 1, 2015 42%
March 2015 July 1, 2015 33%
April 2015 July 1, 2016

(up to 14 months)

June 2015 July 1, 2016
(up to 13 months)
100%

Promotional Increases

A pay increase of 5% or “Minimum” of the new range, whichever is greater, may be awarded upon promotion or upward reclassification that includes significantly increased responsibilities.

Pay Adjustments

Compensation may be adjusted in response to a number of circumstances, including but not limited to:

  • When significantly additional work is assumed without change to classification.
  • When temporarily assigned the responsibilities of a higher level position.
  • When compensation is not commensurate with the applicable labor market.
  • In response to internal pay equity issues.

Pay adjustments are generally increases of 5%.

Pay adjustments may not exceed 25% in any given twelve (12) month period.

Demotion or Downward Reclassification

Employees who are demoted to a lesser position generally receive a pay decrease.

Employees whose positions are reclassified downward will receive a pay decrease when duties/ responsibilities are significantly decreased, or under similar circumstances.

Range Adjustments

Pay ranges are adjusted periodically to provide increased potential for pay advancement.

Exceptions

Exceptions require written justification, and advance approval of the operating Division Director, the Director of Business and Legal Affairs, and ASUCLA’s Executive Director.

Pay Days

Exempt Employees are paid on a monthly basis on the first day of the month following the pay period end.

When a pay day falls on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, pay checks are distributed the previous regular work day except for payment of December which will paid the first working day of January.

Non-exempt Employees are paid every other Wednesday.

Employees can have their pay automatically deposited to a savings or checking account at almost any bank, savings institution or credit union in the Southern California area.

Employees who elect “Surepay” will view their pay information online at https//atyourservice.ucop.edu.

A Surepay form must be submitted to Payroll to begin this service.

Pay Check Errors

Employees are responsible for reviewing their pay carefully to verify the number of hours, rate paid and deductions taken. This should be done prior to cashing their paychecks or otherwise negotiating them.

Employees are required to report discrepancies immediately to their supervisor or manager. Failure to report pay discrepancies resulting in overpayment may result in immediate dismissal.

ASUCLA retains the right to initiate employee repayments through payroll deductions when an overpayment occurs.

Overtime Hours

In accordance with the Fair Labor Standards Act, when employees with non-exempt pay status work more than 40 hours in a single work week, they will be compensated with either:

  • Overtime pay at 1.5 times the regular hourly rate of pay.
  • Compensatory Time at 1.5 times “straight time”.

Premium overtime pay and Comp Time applies only to hours actually worked, and excludes any hours on paid or unpaid leave.

Wherever operationally feasible, Comp Time is to be taken in the same work week in which overtime hours will occur. In such cases, Comp Time is taken at “straight time”.

Overtime pay or Comp Time does not occur when a non-exempt employee works in excess of 8 hours in one day, unless the 40 hours per week minimum requirement has been exceeded.

No more than 240 hours of Comp Time may be accrued (160 hours of actual overtime worked at 1.5 times “straight time”). An employee shall be paid for overtime hours that exceed this maximum accrual limit, at 1.5 times the regular hourly rate.

Employees must have supervisory approval prior to working overtime hours or taking Comp Time.

Based on operating needs and employee preferences, supervisors will determine which method of compensation to apply to overtime hours worked.

“Report-In” Pay

Non-exempt employees will be paid for a minimum of 2 hours at their regular rates when they are scheduled to report to work.

“Standby” Pay

Non-exempt employees will be paid at their regular rates for any hours they are required to remain on standby at ASUCLA facilities/premises. If an excess of 40 hours are worked in that work week, overtime rates will be paid.

Employees who are performing on-call duty but who are not required to remain at ASUCLA facilities/premises (e.g., wearing pagers or checking in periodically) do not receive standby pay and are not eligible for minimum callback pay if asked to report for actual work.

“Callback” Pay

When called back to work after completing the regular work schedule and leaving the work premises, non-exempt employees will be paid at their regular rates for a minimum of 4 hours plus any additional hours actually worked. If an excess of 40 hours are worked in that work week, overtime rates will be paid.

Travel Time

Non-exempt employees will be paid at their regular rates for time spent traveling to and/or from a work location that is not the employee’s regular work site. The usual amount of time spent traveling to and/or from home to the regular work site, and any meal periods, may be deducted.

Blood Drive Participation

Non-exempt employees who donate blood or platelets during campus blood drives will receive 4 hours of Comp Time at “straight time”.

Exempt employees who donate blood or platelets during campus blood drives will receive 4 hours time off.

Shift Differential

In some cases, non-exempt employees assigned to work special shifts receive a shift differential rate in addition to their regular rate of pay. Check with your supervisor or manager to determine how shift differential is administered in your department.

The differential pay rate applies only to the hours worked that fall into your department’s “special shift”. For example:

If “special shift” is …. And your shift is …. You’d receive differential pay for ….
8:00 – 12:00 8:00 – 12:00 8:00 – 12:00
8:00 – 12:00 6:00 – 10:00 8:00 – 10:00

Advance on Pay & Vacation

ASUCLA does not provide advances on pay or vacation accruals.

Gratuities (“Tips”)

Employees are prohibited from accepting any form of gratuity from ASUCLA customers or vendors.

“Garnishments of Pay”

Policy Supersedes Effective
#431 none 4/1/98

A garnishment is any judicial or government administrative procedure through which an employee’s wages are required to be withheld for the payment of any debt.

Upon receipt of a court order for pay garnishment, and if the employee cannot obtain a release from the creditor, the moneys due will be forwarded to the proper authority.

Any other type of inquiry or request by an outside concern addressing an employee’s indebtedness will not, for purposes of this policy, be considered a garnishment.

ASUCLA will not assume responsibility for the collection of any employee debt, except those owed to ASUCLA or when directed by court order.

ASUCLA will provide information to creditors only in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

Corrective Action

ASUCLA recognizes garnishments of an employee’s pay as a costly, administrative burden. In accordance with state and federal laws, ASUCLA may therefore take corrective action, up to and including dismissal, with an employee when a court order to garnish or withhold his/her earnings is received.

By statute, an employee may not be dismissed because of multiple garnishments to satisfy a single judgment, or to satisfy a Support Order.

Financial Counseling Services

Employees who are experiencing difficulties in the management of their personal finances are encouraged to seek financial counseling through UCLA’s Staff & Faculty Counseling Center. For more information, call them at 310/794-0245.
