1500-HourFAQ'S:

1) What is the new 1500-Hour Tracking system? This system allows wage employees to view 1500-hour information including their anniversary date, total hours worked in their anniversary year and total hours remaining for work in the anniversary year.

2) What are the rules regarding 1500 hours? Wage employees are limited to working no more than 1500 hours per 365-consecutive-day period. Once employees reach the maximum of 1500 hours, they may not work until after the 365-day period has elapsed. Please note that departments may have budgetary or other limitations on the number of hours wage employees may work throughout the year, thereby restricting wage employees to less than 1500 hours. See Policy 1325 - Wage Employment for more information.

3) How is my anniversary date determined?
The anniversary date will always remain the initial date of hire unless the wage employee is separated from active service for a period greater than 365 days.




4) What hours count toward the Total Hours amount? Regular and overtime hours worked as a wage employee in any department on campus will count toward the 1500 hour limit and will appear in the Total Hours amount.




5) What does the Hours Remaining amount represent? This is the total number of hours you have to work in your anniversary year before reaching the 1500 hour limit.

6) What happens if I have more than one wage job? You will see the departments listed separately on the 1500-Hour Tracking screen with the total hours worked in each department.

8) What does the Hours Last Pay Period column represent? This column is the total regular and overtime hours worked in the last pay period. The last pay period end date is displayed on the 1500 Hour Tracking screen on the My Madison Employee tab.

9) When is the Total Hours amount updated? Hours worked are recorded at the end of each pay period and do not update the system until payroll is processed for that pay period.

10) Can my supervisor view my 1500 hour information? Yes. A feature similar to the one in J-Ess is also available for managers. Managers of wage employees can view their anniversary date, total hours, hours last pay period, and hours remaining. If you have more than one wage job, each reporting to different supervisors, the supervisor will only see the job he or she supervises.

11) I transferred from a wage position to a full-time position yet I can still access my 1500-Hour Tracking information in J-Ess. Why? You will continue to have access to your 1500 hour information through the end of your anniversary year.
