University support staff (i.e. grades 1-5)

Overtime is defined as time which, with the approval of the line manager, is worked in excess of the hours specified in the contract of employment.

(i) All staff employed in grades 1-5 are eligible for overtime.

(iv) Where compensation for overtime is to be paid, additional qualifying hours worked over 36.5 per week will be paid in accordance with the following schedule:

the first 7.25 hours of overtime working (in excess of 36.5 hours): time and a half

any subsequent hours of overtime working (i.e. on completion of 43.75 hours): double time

(v) Overtime on public holidays (where an individual is not contractually obliged to work on public holidays) will be paid at double time.

Details about how this should be administered can be found in section 3.7.2 of the Handbook for Support Staff

Academic-related staff are not eligible for overtime; however, members of the academic-related staff who are requested to work on Bank Holidays or fixed days of closure will be compensated by equivalent time-off in lieu.
