The University of Texas at Dallas, as a component of the University of Texas System, is required to use definitions and standards applicable under the Fair Labor Standards Act to comply with the General Appropriations Act, Article IX, Section 2, concerning overtime compensation requirements.
The schedule of activities should be organized such that employees are not required to work in excess of established work periods except when operational necessities demand it. Any overtime served which results in an employee being paid for his/her services must have the advance written approval of the President or his/her designee. The president of UT Dallas has delegated this authority to the department heads.
For further instructions and clarification for instructions on who qualifies for compensatory and/or overtime, please refer to the Policies and Procedures Manual regarding Overtime Compensation.
For payment of overtime, complete an Overtime Request form.
See our Time and Labor page for information on a project that will simplify Overtime Payments.
