This item identifies the method of computation and total amount of pay an employee is entitled to receive for a temporary, nonroster appointment. The computation is as follows: BASE x RATE = AMOUNT DUE
Coding: 
BASE Days = XX. Pay is based on a flat daily rate; enter the number of days the employee worked. There is no provision for fractions of days or days and hours. Hours/Fraction = XXX X (no decimal point). Pay is based on an hourly rate; enter the number of hours and tenths the employee worked. There is no provision for hundredths of hours. Note: Because of a system error, you must add a trailing zero when requesting a fraction of an hour (e.g., 50 instead of 5). If the trailing zero is not entered, the computer will interpret the entry as 05, resulting in an underpayment. Units XX.X = (enter decimal point). Pay is based on a unit rate; enter the number of units and tenths the employee worked. There is no provision for hundredths of units. RATE XXXX.XX = The base rate of pay used to compute the amount the employee is entitled to receive. Enter appropriate base rate as shown for the class in the CSU Salary Schedule. AMOUNT DUE XXXXX.XX = The total pay computed from BASE x RATE.
