University of Mary Hardin-Baylor Employee Handbook

Recording Work Hours

It is Berea College's policy to comply with applicable laws requiring records to be maintained of the hours our employees work. To ensure that the College keeps accurate records of the hours you actually work (including overtime hours where applicable) and of the sick time or other leave taken during the pay period, and to ensure that you are paid in a timely manner, all nonexempt employees are required to accurately record their time worked and their absences on the College's official timesheet form. This form must also be completed and signed by you as an accurate statement of the hours you have worked and the benefit hours requested and approved. Your supervisor will sign the form and forward it to the Payroll Office for processing.

Exempt staff are expected to record their time away from work appropriately and to submit their timesheets to the appropriate director or vice president immediately following the end of each month.  Any vacation, sick leave or holiday time taken during the month should be accurately recorded on the Monthly Timesheet.

You must be certain that you accurately record your hours worked and leave time taken.  Falsification of a time record is a serious breach of policy and grounds for disci­plinary action, up to and including termination of employment.
