Faculty Administrator Employees - (Employee Class FA)
Process: Faculty Administrator recognition bonus payments are all performance based and should be sent directly to Human Resources on a specific "immediate recognition" type form for processing. Since Faculty Administrators are generally considered "exempt" employees not subject to FLSA overtime provisions, no overtime recalculation in required.
Bonus payments made to faculty administrators may not be "grossed up" and are charged to sub account 4036 using the BON earnings code. Generally, bonus payments will be charged to the same labor distribution accounts as the individual's regular pay unless specified otherwise. The Faculty Incentives Options Policy #5401(or #6403) applies to all faculty administrator bonus payments. When the payment is made as a hiring or retention incentive, this requires a formal written agreement between the University and the individual and will be approved and signed by the President. When the payment is made as a recognition incentive this requires the Department Chair and/or Dean of the College and the appropriate Vice Presidential or higher approval before these type payments can be processed.
These payments are issued through the normal payroll process - no manual checks will be issued.
