This is an archive from Spring and Summer 2016

Formulas by Employee Group

ARPs | Instructors | ASPs | RPs | TPs

ARPs (Non tenure-track library faculty)

  • Originally 6 Spring Sacrifice Days were projected
  • With stopgap funding, the total Spring Sacrifice Days was reduced to 4-6 (up to 5 Furlough Days, 1 Contingent Salary Week between March 15-April 30)
  • As 12 month employees, the deduction of 20% of gross pay from paychecks on 3/31, 4/15, and 4/29 covers the 6 days taken between March 15-April 30.
  • Academic Resource Professionals will have no more salary reductions, and no more furloughs this spring.
  • If ARPs scheduled any Furlough Days between May 1 and May 15, they will be reimbursed for the resulting overpayment. ARP Furlough Reporting Forms are being reviewed to calculate potential reimbursements.
  • If you are owed a reimbursement for one Furlough Day, you will receive back 10% of your normal gross pay, i.e. one half of the amount deducted from your check on 4/29.
  • If you are owed a reimbursement for two Furlough Days, you will receive back 20% of your normal gross pay, i.e. the amount deducted from your check on 4/29.
  • We anticipate the reimbursements will be in the June 15 paycheck.

Instructors (Non-tenure-track faculty)

Instructors – (only those employed at 100% were impacted)

  • Originally 6 Spring Sacrifice Days were projected
  • With stopgap funding, the total Spring Sacrifice Days was reduced to 4-6 (2 Furlough Days during Spring Break, 1 Contingent Salary Week the week including April 1, 1 Contingent Salary Week the week of May 8, and 1 Furlough Day and 1 Contingent Salary Week scheduled individually between April 3 and May 7)
  • Most Instructors receive their nine-month pay across 18 pays (9 months); some have their pay spread across 24 pays (12 months).

Instructors on 18 pays:

  • Instructors on 18 pays had a deduction of 20% of gross pay from paychecks on 3/31, 4/15, and 4/29, which covered the 6 projected Spring Sacrifice Days to be taken between March 15-May 15.
  • Instructors on 18 pays will have no more salary reductions, and no more furloughs this spring.
  • All Instructors will be reimbursed for overpayment of the Contingent Salary Week scheduled for May 8-15.
  • If Instructors scheduled a Furlough Day or Contingent Salary week between May 1 and May 7, they will be reimbursed for the resulting overpayment. Instructor Furlough Reporting Forms are being reviewed to calculate potential reimbursements.

  • If you are owed a reimbursement for two Furlough Days, you will receive back 20% of your normal gross pay, i.e. the amount deducted from your check on 4/29.
  • We anticipate the reimbursements will be in the June 15 paycheck.

Instructors on 24 pays:

  • Instructors on 24 pays were scheduled to receive pay deductions that would total the deductions for Instructors on 18 pays as described above, but the deductions were to be taken in smaller amounts (10.6% of gross each pay period to add up to total needed) and spread out to six pay periods.
  • If Instructors scheduled a Furlough Day or Contingent Salary week between May 1 and May 7, they will have deductions equivalent for a total of four Sacrifice Days for spring; their deduction of 10.6 of gross will end with the 5/13/16 pay. Instructor Furlough Reporting Forms are being reviewed to calculate the total number of Sacrifice Days.
  • If Instructors scheduled both their Furlough Day and Contingent Salary week to occur before May 1, they will have deductions equivalent for a total of five Sacrifice Days for spring. Instructor Furlough Reporting Forms are being reviewed to calculate the total number of Sacrifice Days.
  • HR will reconcile to the dollar the amount to be collected on the June 15 pay.

For an Instructor whose salary is partially grant-funded:

  • Reduce annual salary by the percentage that is grant-funded, and then apply the formula above to calculate the total deduction for spring. Use the pay schedule above to determine the pay periods impacted, and watch your paystubs to confirm the correct total deductions are taken.NEIUPI has completed negotations with the administration regarding the bargaining unit members’ sacrifice days.

Academic Support Professionals

  • Originally 6 Spring Sacrifice Days were projected
  • With stopgap funding, the total Spring Sacrifice Days was reduced to 4-6 (up to 5 Furlough Days, 1 Contingent Salary Week between March 15-April 30)
  • As 12 month employees, the deduction of 20% of gross pay from paychecks on 3/31, 4/15, and 4/29 covers the 6 days taken between March 15-April 30.
  • Academic Support Professionals will have no more salary reductions, and no more furloughs this spring.
  • If ASPs scheduled any Furlough Days between May 1 and May 15, they will be reimbursed for the resulting overpayment. ASP Furlough Reporting Forms are being reviewed to calculate potential reimbursements.
  • If you are owed a reimbursement for one Furlough Day, you will receive back 10% of your normal gross pay, i.e. one half of the amount deducted from your check on 4/29.
  • If you are owed a reimbursement for two Furlough Days, you will receive back 20% of your normal gross pay, i.e. the amount deducted from your check on 4/29.
  • We anticipate the reimbursements will be in the June 15 paycheck.

Resource Professionals (Tenured/tenure-track library faculty)

  • With stopgap funding, the total Spring Sacrifice Days was reduced to 7 (6 Furlough Days, 1 Contingent Salary Week between March 15-April 30).
  • As 12 month employees, the deduction of 20% of gross pay from paychecks on 3/31, 4/15, and 4/29 covers the 7 days taken between March 15-April 30.

Resource Professionals are done—no more salary reductions, and no more furloughs this spring.

Teaching Professionals (Tenure-track faculty)

  • Originally 9 Spring Sacrifice Days were projected
  • With stopgap funding, the total Spring Sacrifice Days was reduced to 7 (2 Furlough Days during Spring Break, 1 Contingent Salary Week the week including April 1, 1 Contingent Salary Week the week of May 8, and 2 Furlough Days and 3 Contingent Salary Weeks scheduled individually between April 3 and May 7)
  • Most Teaching Professionals receive their nine-month pay across 24 pays (12 months); some have their pay spread across 18 pays (9 months).

Teaching Professionals on 18 pays:

  • Teaching Professionals on 18 pays saw a deduction of 20% of gross pay from paychecks on 3/31, 4/15, and 4/29, which covers the 7 days taken between March 15-April 30.
  • Teaching Professionals on 18 pays are done—no more salary reductions, and no more furloughs this spring.

Teaching Professionals on 24 pays:

  • Teaching Professionals on 24 pays need to contribute the equivalent amount as those on 18 pays, as outlined above. To calculate the total amount to be collected for the 7 Sacrifice days this spring, faculty can take their annual salary, divide by 18 (2 pays per month), multiple by 3 (pay periods to cover the 7 days) and multiply by .20 (one day per week). This represents the total dollar amount to be collected for the 7 total Sacrifice Days.
  • HR began deducting 10.6% of gross pay with the 3/31 pay, to add up to the original total needed. To collect the total amount now owed for the 7 sacrifice Days, the scheduled deductions of 10.6% of gross pay on 3/31, 4/15, 4/29, 5/13, 5/31, 6/15, 6/30, and an additional deduction of 5.3% on 7/15, will equal the total amount required. HR will reconcile to the dollar the amount to be collected on 7/15.

For a Teaching Professional whose salary is partially grant-funded:

  • Reduce annual salary by the percentage that is grant-funded, and then apply the formula above to calculate the total deduction for spring. Use the pay schedule above to determine the pay periods impacted, and watch your paystubs to confirm the correct total deductions are taken.
