For non-exempt employees, all bonus awards must be based on a percentage of the annual gross salary (earnings). As this amount may include miscellaneous payments from shift and overtime, the FLSA requirement to factor the bonus into the "regular rate" for overtime calculations will be satisfied.
For exempt employees, bonuses can be expressed as a flat dollar amount or a percentage of income.
Bonuses are paid via the PIP system using the serial number of the employee's position or other serial number as designated by the campus. The payment may be requested using the Miscellaneous Payroll/Leave Action Form (STD. 671) or the Time and Attendance Report Form 672. The appropriate Earnings ID and the gross amount of the bonus must be denoted on the form to request payment (refer to PPM section G105 for instructions).
