Premium Pay

Pursuant to DEA (LOCAL) Premium Pay During Disasters:

  • Nonexempt employees who are required to work during an emergency closing for a disaster, as declared by a federal, state, or local official or the Board, shall be paid at the rate of one and one-half times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked up to 40 hours per week. Overtime for time worked over 40 hours in a week shall be calculated and paid according to law. [See DEAB] The Superintendent or designee shall approve payments and ensure that accurate time records are kept of actual hours worked during emergency closings.

At the March 20, 2020 Board meeting, the Board of Trustees approved a Resolution regarding pay during this emergency school closure. Specifically, the Board authorized the Superintendent to make decisions regarding pay under DEA(LOCAL), and to make determinations regarding the purpose and parameters of any such payments.

Beginning April 1, 2020, AISD will issue premium pay to all hourly employees required to work ‘on-site’. Premium pay will be paid only when the employee is ‘on-site’. If the employee also works from home, the pay for any work done at home will be at the employee’s standard rate of pay.

Each employee required to work ‘on-site’ must use a fingerprint reader to clock in/out. If the fingerprint is unreadable and/or the employee is unable to clock in/out using the fingerprint reader, the supervisor must contact the Payroll Department.

This premium pay provision will end once schools have reopened, or when the Superintendent deems appropriate.
