Changes to Overtime Policy in 2015
ClockPurdue will modify its overtime policy, effective Jan. 12, 2015. The changes bring Purdue in line with most public and private sector employers, including the State of Indiana and Purdue's peer universities, and act as a recurring cost-avoidance measure.
Under this policy change, nonexempt (paid biweekly) staff will be paid overtime for actual hours worked in excess of 40 hours in any single workweek. Paid and unpaid leave days (i.e., vacation, jury duty, sick leave, bereavement leave, etc.), with the exception of university-recognized holidays, will not be counted to determine eligibility for overtime pay. Recognizing university holidays as time worked is beyond what the majority of universities provide; however, Purdue considers its inclusion important.
The change is the second step in a process that began in 2010, in which Purdue moved from a policy that paid overtime for every hour worked over eight each work day. Questions may be directed to Kirk Tolliver at 481-6679 or Carolyn Ladd at 481-6680 in Human Resources.

In addition, online W-2 forms will be available each January, several business days before paper forms are mailed to employees' homes. Employees are encouraged to register for this service. Those who wish to choose the paperless option for 2014 must register by December 31, 2014.
