Zero Rate of Pay Employment Status Policy

Duke categorizes the status of faculty and staff to make distinctions in benefits and conditions of employment and to aid in better understanding of employment relationships with Duke. Such distinctions allow for various relationships to have access to Duke resources in support of mission driven activities.

The purpose of the Zero Rate of Pay Policy is to help manage the growing number of employees that are not actively working at Duke University but remain active within Duke’s HR/Payroll System. This has implications for reporting, benefits administration, and liability. Only individuals who will be compensated at a near future date and paid from Duke’s payroll should be listed at a zero rate of pay in the Human Resources/Payroll system.
