AHR Current News and Information


Academic HR has developed a set of Frequently Asked Questions on Additional Compensation: Extramurally Funded Research. In certain circumstances, UC ANR academics may request approval to receive additional compensation for performing extra work on extramurally-funded research projects while utilizing accrued vacation leave. Sufficient funding for the additional compensation must be provided through the extramurally funded research project. If approved, you may be eligible to receive up to one-twelfth (1/12) of your annual salary for extra work performed during vacation.  A corresponding number of accrued vacation days will be deducted from your vacation leave balance. 

The FAQs and a request form are now posted on the Academic HR Academic Training & Resources page at: Additional Compensation Information

The FAQs apply to ANR academics whose personnel actions are processed by ANR. If you are a CE Specialist and your personnel actions are approved through a UC campus, you would follow your campus’ review and approval process for additional compensation requests.
