Authorization to Offset Amounts due to the University by an Employee Against Amounts Owed by University to that Employee

The university shall have the right to offset against amounts due and payable to an employee, including student-employee, by the university, those liquidated amounts due and payable by the employee to the university for any reason, with the university then paying the net amount remaining to the employee in full satisfaction of his or her wages or other amount due as follows:

  1. Non-members of the university community may not make use of university buildings or grounds for any distribution purposes unless registered with the Office of Campus Life in advance. In addition, distribution of printed materials in university-owned buildings or grounds by Greek organizations, residence halls, individual students and registered student organizations may occur only if the materials are stamped in advance by the Office of Campus Life.
  2. In all other cases of offsets against an employee’s wages, the university may only offset amounts owed the university against those wages which are above the statutory minimum hourly wage.
  3. If the amounts owed to student-employees constitute payments for work-study or are student loans under a program guaranteed or established by the U.S. government, any offset shall be subject to laws and regulations governing those programs.
  4. The university may offset amounts owed to the university against all sums owed to an employee other than wages, or student work-study or loan payments.

Subject to the above limitations, each chancellor through the business officer of that campus, may develop with an affected employee a repayment plan for successive offsets so that the entire amount owed to the university is not offset on a single occasion; provided however that no such plan shall be developed in the instance of any final settlement of accounts, such as where a final check for wages for a terminating employee may be involved.
