Delegation of Authority
D. Summer Payments. Persons employed on an academic year basis shall be compensated for additional assignments during the summer session at the rate up to the equivalent of 2/9 of the previous academic year salary rate for a full workload for an eight-week summer session. If the institution determines that there are differences in summer session workload from a full time workload, then an appropriate compensation level shall be established. (Additional employment periods during the summer may be determined by the institution.) Compensation received in the summer period may not in aggregate exceed 2/9 of the academic year salary of the person appointed unless an explicit exception is granted by the Chancellor or designee, regardless of source of funds.
E. Calculation of Overload Payments. In accordance with ACPS-4, overload payments may be made for work of an "...unusual, short-term, or non-recurring nature." Specific advance approval of the Chancellor or designee is required. Overload is generally calculated at the current monthly rate of pay. Overload payments may be subject to the $18,000 or 20% (whichever is greater) limitation imposed on a fiscal year basis by UW-Platteville for compensation within the UW System; overload payments may be subject to the $12,000 limitation imposed on a calendar year basis for compensation from an agency outside the UW System. These limits are set forth in ACPS-4, UPG-4 and Section 16.417(2), Wisconsin Statutes. Violations of Section 16.417(2) must be repaid by the employee.
