  7. The following example illustrates how the payment can be processed in Kronos:

    Hourly-paid employee teaching a class or performing duties for another department or as an “overload” type situation:
    If the instructor/“overload” duties will be paid using the current pay rate time and one half:
    1. The Kronos code to input the employee time card should be done by the Kronos approver, the code to be used is 343 (this will pay automatically at time and one half).
    2. Account number of the department paying for instructor/overload duties will have to be input in Kronos by the person that approves the timecard (at the employee’s home department).
