Employment - Staff
Compensation

I. Compensatory Time
CUA has no policy that allows employees to accrue compensatory time.

II. Salary Administration Program

An employee's salary is designated on the letter of appointment. Normally, salary increases are determined each year based on budgetary considerations. Should an increase be approved by the Board of Trustees it is usually effective at the beginning of the academic year. The academic year at CUA begins on September 1 and ends on August 31.

III. Pay Periods and Pay Days

Administrative and professional employees are paid once a month, on the last working day of the month.

Non-exempt and union employees are paid twice a month, on the 10th and the 25th, or the last working day before those dates.

Checks are picked up at Cardinal Station by a designated person in each department and then distributed within the department. An employee who does not expect to be on campus on a payday should make arrangements to have his/her pay check returned to the Payroll Office for pickup at a later date.
