Overload Payments

The salary received by full-time Faculty, Academic Staff and Limited Appointees is considered to be full compensation for University activity during the period of appointment.  Professionals with appointments that are exempt from the provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) are expected to expend the total effort necessary to complete their assignments without additional compensation. In general, other options should be considered before overload payments are granted. 

There are instances when an overload may be appropriate. The UW-Green Bay Compensation and Pay Plan Policy details these types of situations and necessary requirements for overload payments to be made.

Approvals for all overload payments must be obtained from the chair/director and the Dean/Division Head prior to the starting date of the overload service.  Overload payments for 12-month employees must also be approved by the Area Leader and Position & Compensation Review Committee. Overload compensation may not exceed the higher of either 20 percent (20%) of the employee's academic (c-basis/9 month) or annual (a-basis 12 month) base salary or $18,000 unless the Provost (or other applicable Area Leader) determines that good cause exists to exceed this threshold and issues an exception in writing.
