I. General Policy
This policy applies to all faculty and staff
Faculty and staff members required by Rice University to attend court proceedings as witnesses are compensated at their regular rate of pay for hours spent in court. For technical or support staff (nonexempt staff), these hours are considered "hours worked" for the purpose of calculating overtime.
Staff members appearing in Court for non-University related matters are not compensated for lost time. They may, however, draw upon accumulated benefit time. These hours are not considered "hours worked" for the purpose of calculating overtime.
