From time to time, units have the need for Civil Service staff to perform an additional assignment in excess of their normal work schedule, which is of limited duration. Current status employees or persons hired as Extra Help can be used for such work. If the individual is a current status employee, the rate of pay is determined by the employee’s overtime eligibility and the classification of the work performed. If the individual is employed as Extra Help, the Extra Help classification and job duties determine the rate of pay.
When an additional assignment is performed by current employees it is reported and paid through a Transaction. The manner in which this procedure is applied will depend on whether the employee is eligible for overtime within the rules as stated in Policy 6, Rule 6.01 and Rule 6.04 , of Policy and Rules for Civil Service Staff. The additional assignment guidelines are as follows:
Eligible for Overtime (Non-exempt)
For 100% time employees where overtime is involved and where the rate of pay is different from the regular appointment rate of pay, the time and one-half premium will apply to the specific rate being paid during overtime hours.
Employees who are not eligible for overtime will receive the rate which is appropriate for the special assignment. The correct classification and pay rate may be obtained by contacting Classification and Salary Administration as described above.
Further questions concerning this procedure should be directed to the Classification and Salary Administration, Staff Human Resources, (217) 333-2136.
The guidelines and request for Lump Sum Payments for Civil Service Employees can be found at: Lump Sum Guidelines for Civil Service.
