If you are non-exempt (hourly paid), clock out for the time that you are volunteering (this includes travel time). You or your supervisor will add the hours using the pay code “Volunteer Pay” in Kronos. This process mirrors how you handle other paid time off such as sick, vacation, PTO, etc.
For example, if Mary is volunteering from 9:00 am to 11:00 am and leaves at 8:30 am and returns at 11:30 am, she would clock out at 8:30 am, clock back in at 11:30 am and then add 3 hours of “Volunteer Pay” in Kronos.
If you are exempt (salaried), the hours spent volunteering should also be coded as “Volunteer Pay” in Kronos. Unlike sick and vacation that are reported in half and full day increments, “Volunteer Pay” is entered in increments of 15 minutes.
For example, if Mary spends 2.5 hours performing volunteer work, she would add a line in Kronos with 2.5 hours of “Volunteer Pay”.
