A shift allowance is an additional hourly pay rate applied to a non-exempt employee's base pay if, during a given pay period, at least half of total hours worked are on either a second or third shift. Employees are paid at a 2nd Shift allowance rate if at least half their work hours are between 4:30 p.m. and midnight, and a 3rd Shift allowance rate if at least half their work hours are between midnight and 8:00 a.m. See Section 5 UAPPM 3500 for more information.
Note: A University-wide schedule of approved shift allowance rates has been established by the Division of Human Resources for non-exempt staff in non-bargaining unit positions.
Departments that employ shift workers should refer to the Shift Allowance Schedule on the Human Resources Website to determine appropriate shift allowance rate. Shift allowance rates that do not conform to this schedule will be rejected by the Banner HRPR system.
Employees in FLSA "Exempt" positions are not eligible for shift allowances.
For bargaining unit employees please refer to the appropriate union bargaining agreement.
