To comply with federal and state requirements, each dean, director, or department head shall ensure maintenance of accurate records of all hours worked daily and weekly by each classified employee for a minimum of three years. Each dean, director, or department head also should be fully aware that compliance with federal and state requirements is only possible if each classified employee's working hours are recorded accurately during each work shift and rounded daily to the nearest tenth of an hour. Timekeeping is particularly important in instances where classified employees are required or permitted to perform work at home. The necessity of accurately reporting time for all actual hours worked should be stressed with the employee. In no case shall classified employees be permitted to perform university work at home without prior approval of the unit supervisor.
Each classified employee is required to be present on the assigned job for the total number of hours for which compensation is being received unless absence from duty is authorized in accordance with these policies.
Professional and administrative (P&A) employees must submit a monthly report to their supervisor of leave time used during the previous month.
Administrators shall submit a written annual report to their supervisor by January 15th of each new calendar year regarding their own leave used during the previous year that includes the following:
· A statement of the total number of leave days [annual, sick, or other] used in the preceding calendar year, indicating the specific dates of the leave used, and
· A verification of their total accrued vacation days officially on the books at the end of the preceding calendar year.
Falsification by an employee of any attendance and leave record may be cause for dismissal.
