NE & NL Employees

What does it mean if my title is NE or NL?

The NE employee normally working 35 hours will receive compensatory time for the 36th through the 40th hour.  NE employees working in excess of 40 hours per week will be compensated at time and a half.   

University Employees in the classified NL category of employment (non-fixed workweek) have no claim or entitlement to time off or cash compensation for hours worked beyond their normal schedule. NL employees are exempt from wage and hour overtime rules. NL means “no-limit” workers. However, “unusual requirements” for additional work time by NL Employees may be compensated by allowing roughly comparable times off (i.e. hour for hour compensatory time).  NL Employees are not eligible for compensatory time for work done as an extension of the regular work day except in unusual circumstances including, but not limited to, emergencies, critical events and programs, one-time special projects and/or key initiatives as determined by the division head or their designee. 

The Overtime and Compensatory Time Eligibility Chart breaks down time eligibility for both NE and NL employees.

If you are unsure whether or not your position has NE or NL in the title please contact the Office of Human Resources for clarification.
