Payroll FAQ

Online Pay Statements

Is my pay information available online?

Electronic delivery of confidential pay information is more secure, cost effective, and environmentally friendly than using paper pay statements. The HR/Payroll System provides secure access to your pay information, as well as to links related to your employment at Notre Dame, from any web enabled computer.

How do I find out my pay information?

All employees have Pay Statements available online. To access online Pay Statements, log into InsideND with your NetID and password. Search for and click the Pay Statement Task. Hourly employees will be provided paper pay statements in addition to having access to their online earnings statements. This is necessary because not all hourly employees have access to computers during work hours.

How is my overtime compensation calculated?

How is my overtime compensation calculated?

Overtime is paid at the rate of one and one-half (1 ½) times an employee’s regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of forty (40) hours in a standard work week. “Hours worked” refers to the amount of time actually worked in a standard work week. Paid time off for sick leave, vacation, or holidays is not included in hours worked for the determination of overtime.

Overtime hours and compensation is based on calculation using the above rate.


An employee paid $10.00 an hour works 45 hours in a standard work week

The straight time earnings for the week is $450.00 (45 hours worked x $10.00 = $450.00)

Total hours worked (including overtime)

Hourly Rate

Straight time earnings (including overtime)




The overtime earnings for the week is $25.00 (5 hours x $10.00 x.5= $25.00)

Overtime hours worked

Overtime Rate ($10.00 x .5)

Overtime earnings




Total earnings


Total earnings for the standard week are $475.00. The employee, therefore, receives one and one-half (1 ½) times employee’s regular rate for overtime hours worked.

Straight time earnings ($10.00 x 40) = $400.00

Overtime earnings ($10.00 x 1.5 x 5) = $75.00


Total earnings = $475.00

Faculty/Staff Additional Pay for Services

The instructions for the Faculty/Staff Additional Pay for Services Form say I MUST use a Labor account code for payments on this form. But I charge these types of payments to a non-labor account (i.e. entertainment, royalties.) What should I do?

The new HR/Payroll System requires that any payment to a Notre Dame employee must use a labor account code in combination with the department’s fund, org and program codes. To assist with this transition, the Controller’s Office created a new set of labor account codes to use for special payments to Notre Dame employees and for graduate stipends.

See Chart of Accounts

If you have questions about the Chart of Accounts, please email the Office of the Controller.

I budgeted my employee additional pay for services payments in the non-labor accounts. Will I be penalized when my expenses don’t match my budget?

Departments will not be penalized for expenditures not matching their budgets when these expenses are charged to the new labor account codes, rather than the non-labor account to which the funds were budgeted. However, the department’s overall (total) budget does need to balance.
