I’m an exempt employee, why do I need to submit time?

As an exempt employee, you are not required to submit time to receive your regular pay in Workday. However, it may be necessary for you to submit time for other reasons, such as:


  • You worked on a University holiday

You will need to record hours worked and, under Compensatory Time, select either Comp Earned (for double comp) or Comp Paid (for half comp/half pay).

  • You earned Holiday Comp Hours when a holiday falls on a day you are not normally scheduled to work

For Time Type, select Holiday Comp Earned for Scheduled Day Off

  • You worked during a campus closure, are deemed essential, and therefore earned comp time

For Time Type, select Campus Closure Compensatory Hours Earned
