Occasionally, hourly staff members will be required to travel away from the university campus in order to participate in conferences or perform other work-related duties. You will not be paid wages for your travel time unless it cuts across your normal work day. Similarly, you will not be paid wages for meal breaks. If your work requires an overnight stay, the actual time that you spend working, such as, when attending a conference or meetings, reading conference materials, performing conference or workrelated activities on a laptop computer, etc., is considered “hours worked.” All other hours are not
“hours worked” and are not compensable time. Expenses for travel are allowed under the university’s
Travel Policy, reprinted as Appendix G.
Travel for “Call-Back” Assignments: Staff who are called back to work outside of their regular work hours and after they have finished their day’s work shall have their travel time to and from work for the call-back assignment counted as “hours worked.”
