5.5 Making Up Time

This page was last updated more than five years ago. See the update history page for more information.

Occasionally, employees may be authorized to take time off from their normal workday for certain absences that are not covered by other leave policies. In this event, although there is no obligation to do so, a supervisor may reschedule the work of an employee, provided the work load is sufficient to justify it and adequate supervision is available. Make-up time should not be scheduled so as to require overtime pay.

Time lost from the normal workday should be reported as unpaid and the make-up time reported, when worked, as time worked. If making up lost time involves work after the normal workday, employees and supervisors should make arrangements to have at least one other person nearby in case of an emergency, particularly in hazardous areas or remote locations.
