 **NEW Premium Pay (Non-Exempt)**

All non-exempt employees receiving a differential will have their differential converted to premium pay. All existing differentials have been converted automatically. The designation for premium pay is located in BANNER(NBAJOBS) under the – Payroll Default Tab. The code will indicate the type of premium pay.  Below is a list of the premium pay category codes. The hourly rate will not change on NBAJOBS, only the addition of the Premium Pay Code on the Payroll Default tab will be visible.

Premium pay will be utilized for non-exempt differentials only. Exempt positions with a differential will continue to see an additional suffix for the differential.

If premium pay is needed for a non-exempt employee, the effective date will be the 1st of the month after HRS receives of the PAF. Premium pay cannot be paid retroactively, no exceptions. The end date must correspond with the end of a pay period (15th or 31st).  As outlined in the table below, premium pay is based on a set dollar amount or percentage.
