Extra Service is work performed by UUP or M/C professionals who are on a State payroll, or the SUNY Research Foundation, other than the one to which the employee is regularly assigned, or special assignments performed at their own campus that are substantially different from, or in addition to, their regularly assigned duties and responsibilities when the extra service work, in combination with the employee's regular assignment and any other dual appointment or extra service assignments, will exceed full-time (100%) service. The additional service is performed entirely outside the employee's normal work day/shift and must not interfere with the employee’s regular obligation.
Compensation for extra service may not to exceed an amount equal to 20% of basic annual salary in any academic or calendar year beginning July 1 or September 1, as appropriate. For example, a professional staff member earning a salary of $40,000 may not be paid more than $8,000 for extra service during the course of his or her annual professional obligation. Summer employment outside the period of an academic year obligation does not constitute extra service. Compensation for such summer employment is covered by the university policy on summer session appointment and compensation rates.
Extra service for teaching a course at Buffalo State will not be approved for Management Confidential employees.
Rules and regulations surrounding extra service compensation within SUNY are grounded in several State documents and publications including the UUP Agreement and the SUNY Policies of the Board of Trustees.
With the 2016-2022 UUP Agreement, Department Chairs who receive a stipend are NOW eligible for extra service during the term of their academic obligation as a department chair. (UUP Article 25 Compensation of Department Chairpersons §25.1(a). Payment of such stipend as well as any extra service earned during the same time period shall not exceed 20% of basic annual salary.
Prior to commencement of the extra service assignment, the employee must secure written approval from their supervisor and Vice President/Provost/CIO (Current Employee Change Form).
Extra Service compensation must not be used in lieu of overtime for employees deemed eligible (non-exempt) under the Fair Labor Standards Act. (Note: overtime is a continuation of an employee’s normal job responsibilities.)

Dual Employment (part-time employees OR non-SUNY State Agencies)
Dual Employment occurs when an employee works part-time at two or more State agencies and the combined service in all positions and agencies does not exceed full-time (100%) service. Prior approval must be obtained, through the completion of a dual employment form (AC 1588), from the agency head where the employee is regularly employed before s/he can commence working for, or be paid by, an additional State payroll agency.
Department Head/Supervisor should attempt to determine the current State employment status of individuals before they recommend them for appointment to ensure appropriate approvals are obtained prior to effecting the appointments of individuals already being paid on State payrolls.
To appoint an individual on a part-time basis who is employed on a part-time basis at another State agency, please advise the person to complete a dual employment form to obtain their agency head approval and forward the form to the Payroll Office, Cleveland Hall 408. The form will be reviewed and submitted to the Office of the State Comptroller.
If a part-time Buffalo State employee anticipates working part-time at another State agency, s/he will need to complete a dual employment form and submit it to their Department Head/Supervisor. The Department Head/Supervisor will review the form, ensuring it will not interfere with the employee's regular duties, and prepare a Current Employee Change Form and route both forms for approval.
For part-time faculty, the Dean is authorized to approve the dual employment form and is the final approver on the Current Employee Change Form. The Dean's Office may mail the dual employment form to the Office of the State Comptroller, Bureau of State Payroll Services, 110 State Street, Albany, NY 12236, or send it to Human Resource Management to mail. Please send Human Resource Management a copy of the Current Employee Change Form and the Dual Employment Form for our records.
