4.7.6 Extra Services Pay

Employees who perform work at the University in excess of their normal load/regular job responsibilities may be eligible for extra compensation provided the excess work and the request for extra compensation conforms with general University regulations and comply with established principles for awarding extra compensation. 
 
Employees who have approved grants/contract projects that perform work at the University in excess of their normal load/regular job responsibilities may be eligible for extra compensation provided the excess work and the request for extra compensation conforms with general University regulations and comply with established principles for awarding extra compensation. Extra compensation must be approved in advance by the appropriate supervisor and Vice President.
 
The Mississippi Constitution, Section 96, prevents extra compensation to state employees after service is rendered or contract is made.  Therefore, any agreement for extra services and commensurate extra compensation must be agreed to prior to the work being performed, and payment cannot be provided for past service as would be the case with a bonus.
