Additional compensation is the payment for work effort that is clearly outside the scope of an employee’s job description and is performed outside of normal job duties.
The university has to ensure that such additional duties and compensation meet all legal requirements including, ethical guidelines, union contract provisions, fair labor standards, posting requirements, equal opportunity, along with other employment related laws and NJIT policies. As such, arrangements for additional compensation should be under extraordinary circumstances and must be approved prior to assignment of work to an employee.

Faculty overload teaching assignments and summer grant work covered under the provisions of the faculty handbook or contract are exempt from this process.
