Work Schedules

The State pay period contains either 21 or 22 normal workdays. Under this plan, normal workdays are Monday through Friday, including holidays. Non-exempt CSU employees paid through the State payroll system on a monthly basis generate the same monthly salary based upon time base fraction and base salary even if the employee’s regular work schedule has more or less hours than the prescribed 21 or 22 workdays (168 or 176 hours respectively) within a given State pay period.

Employee work schedules for all staff and MPP employees are required to be maintained in the Absence Management System. These schedules are necessary for the accurate processing of employee pay, and ensure accurate accruals and calculations for leave use, holidays, alternate days off and plus-minus. Employee work schedules must be entered and maintained in the Absence Management System for both exempt and non-exempt staff.

Submit a completed Work Schedule Form to Human Resources for all new employees and any work schedule change.
*This form will need to be routed to your assigned HR Analyst and assigned Payroll Technician
