This policy applies to all regular faculty and staff employees in work assignments that are less than 12 months and the pay for the assignment is paid over 12 months.
Salary payments that are received prior to the assignment start date are considered advance payments (paid but not earned). While the assignment covers a specific timeframe, all faculty, most exempt staff and some non-exempt staff are paid over 12 months each fiscal year beginning July 1 through June 30.
When the employment of either a faculty or staff member who has received advance payments terminates prior to the end of the appointment or assignment, or when an employee’s plan of work (or work schedule) is reduced which results in a corresponding reduction in salary, the employee is responsible for returning to RIT any salary advance received and not earned.
