(1) Amount and Dates of Pay for Entire Academic Year. An academic year employee who completes all the service required for three quarters or two semesters shall be paid for such service his or her annual salary for an academic year adjusted for changes in salary rates, and time base for the periods covered by such adjustments, in twelve consecutive installments payable on state pay days covering the period of twelve months beginning with the effective date of his or her appointment; provided that adjustments for changes in salary rates may not be made applicable to the vacation period of an academic year employee subsequent to the conclusion of his or her academic year unless that employee has been reappointed or has retired or is retiring within 120 days of the end of the academic year, pursuant to the Public Employees' Retirement Law or the State Teachers' Retirement Law. The first installment shall be paid on the first state pay day following the conclusion of the first academic pay period as determined pursuant to subdivision (c) of Section 42800 and shall be the amount of his or her established monthly salary equivalent for the position. If such employee separates from the position following the completion of his or her assigned duties in the position but prior to the end of the twelve-month period, he or she may on separation be paid as a final settlement the unpaid balance of the salary due him or her.

(2) Amount of Pay for Semester. An academic year employee who completes all the service required for an entire semester shall for that service be paid one-half of his or her annual salary for an academic year, in six monthly installments, adjusted for changes in salary rates and time base of the period covered by such adjustment. Adjustments for changes in salary rates that are effective subsequent to the completion of an academic year employee's required service may not be made applicable to the vacation period of an academic year employee unless that employee has been reappointed or has retired or is retiring within 120 days of the end of his or her required service, pursuant to the Public Employees' Retirement Law or the State Teachers' Retirement Law.

(3) Amount of Pay for Quarter. Except as otherwise provided in this section, an academic year employee who completes all the service required for an entire quarter shall for that service be paid one-third of his or her annual salary for an academic year, in four monthly installments, adjusted for changes in salary rate and time base for the periods covered by such adjustments.

(4) Date of Payments for Service for Semester or Quarter.

(A) An academic year employee who is appointed to serve for one semester only or for one or two quarters only shall be paid in installments payable on state pay days covering the six-month period where appointment is for one semester, or the four-month or eight-month period, as the case may be, where the appointment is for one or two quarters, beginning on the effective date of his or her appointment.
