The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is the federal law that governs the reporting of time worked and leave taken. The proper guidelines to follow when reporting time worked and leave taken depends on whether the employee is appointed to a position that is non-exempt (hourly) or exempt (salaried). FLSA requires that employees in positions that are determined to be non-exempt (hourly) report hours worked and leave taken. Employees in positions that are determined to be exempt (salaried) report only leave taken. Contact HRS if you do not know the FLSA status of your position.
Employees must follow university and departmental instruction for reporting time worked and leave taken.
Hourly (Non-Exempt) Employees Reporting Guidelines
Salaried (Exempt) Employees Reporting Guidelines
Each department or supervisor should have established procedures for requesting paid and unpaid leave of less than 30 calendar days. Employees should follow appropriate procedures to request time away from work. Leave requests for more than 30 calendar days must be approved by the appropriate Vice President or Department Head (President's Division).
