Daylight Savings Time
EXEMPT employees will NOT be affected by daylight savings time. NONEXEMPT employees who worked during this time (Sunday, October 28, 2:00 a.m.) will be compensated as follows: Nonexempt employees who worked during the time when the clock was set back (Sunday, October 28, at 2:00 a.m.) will have an extra hour. All hours actually worked on Sunday will be recorded as regular (REG) hours. (Example: 8-hour shift 9 REG hours will be recorded if the employee worked during the specified shift on Sunday.) If the employee did not adjust their work schedule for the rest of the workweek, they could potentially receive overtime pay (OTP) or compensatory time earned (CME) at the end of the 10/28/2001-11/10/2001 workweek. Remember that overtime is not reported until an employee has met their FLSA limit (40 hours). Please contact Alma Deutsch at (785) 532-1448, if you need further explanation.

Veteran's Day
As a reminder, Veteran's Day, Monday, November 12, is an official state holiday. However, in accordance with Board of Regents policy and the KSU Faculty Handbook it is not a Regents unclassified holiday because classes are in session.

Any full-time CLASSIFIED employee who does not work on Veteran's Day will receive Holiday Credit (HDC) equal to the number of hours normally scheduled to work. A part-time classified employee who works a regular schedule receives Holiday Credit (HDC) equal to whatever pay the employee would receive for that day if it were not a holiday. A part-time classified employee who works an irregular schedule does not receive holiday credit (HDC) but is paid at the time and half rate for those hours worked on a holiday.

Any full-time or part-time classified employee who works up to 8.0 hours on the holiday receives either Holiday Comp Time 1.5 (HCP) or Holiday Pay 1.5 (HDP) for the hours worked PLUS the appropriate hours of HDC. Any hours worked over 8.0 should be reported as either Holiday Comp Earned 1.5 over HDC (HCL) or Holiday Pay 1.5 over HDC (HDL).

A TEMPORARY classified employee will NOT receive Holiday Credit (HDC) but is paid at the time and half rate for those hours worked on a holiday. Holiday Pay (HDL) will be used to record time worked on the holiday for a temporary classified employee.

Veteran's Day is not a Board of Regents unclassified holiday and should be treated like any other work day for all UNCLASSIFIED employees. If an unclassified employee takes the day off, they will need to use leave (i.e., vacation leave, sick leave, etc.). Do not use any holiday earnings codes for your unclassified employees for that day.

Questions may be directed to Alma Deutsch at (785) 532-1448.
