F. Make-Up Time
Make-up time may be used when non-exempt employees require time off due to personal obligations. Employees may take time off and then make up the time later in the same workweek, or may work extra hours earlier in the workweek to make up for time that will be taken off later in the workweek. Make-up time will not be paid at an overtime rate.
Requests for make-up time must be written, signed and submitted to the employee's supervisor. Forms are available at the links below.
Requests will be considered based upon the needs of the department.
If an employee asks to take make-up time that they will make up later in the week, they must submit their request at least 24 hours before the desired time off. If the employee asks to work make-up time first in order to take time off later in the week, they must submit their request at least 24 hours before working the make-up time. Requests must be approved in writing before the time off is taken or make-up time is worked, whichever occurs first. State law requires that all make-up time must be worked in the same workweek as the time taken off.
Employees may not work more than 11 hours in a day as a result of making up time that was or would be missed due to a personal obligation. If an employee takes time off and is unable to work the scheduled make-up time for any reason, the hours missed normally will be unpaid. However, supervisors may arrange with employees to work another time during the workweek to make up the time if possible. If an employee works make-up time before they plan to take time off, they must take that time off, even if they no longer need to do so. Using make-up time is completely voluntary and supervisors have the discretion to decline requests for make up time.
