adopted: May-1990
last revised: Nov-2008

Richland Community College non-faculty employees are paid on a bi-weekly basis. A payroll period is a two week (80 hours) period beginning on Sunday and ending on a Saturday. A standard workweek for non-exempt employees is 40 hours. All bi-weekly employees who are full time and are exempt from Fair Labor Standards Act requirements (“exempt”) ordinarily are scheduled to be paid for eighty (80) hours per bi-weekly period, unless they move into an unpaid leave or disciplinary status in accordance with College policy. Accurate and contemporaneous reporting of nonexempt employee time and attendance is the responsibility of the employee and his/her immediate supervisor. Employees and/or supervisors found improperly reporting time and attendance information are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination. Faculty, including adjunct faculty, non-credit, MCLETC instructors, and adult education instructors will be paid on a semi-monthly basis typically on the 15th of the month and the last day of the month, per the terms of their contract. Overload, extra-duty, and other non-scheduled pay will be paid on a semi-monthly basis typically on the 15th and last day of the month. Upon separation from the College, an employee’s earned and unused vacation and compensatory time will be paid out during the next regularly scheduled payroll period after the employee’s termination date.

An employee’s termination date shall be established by the College.
