Overtime Pay Procedures

Exempt Employees

Exempt employees do not receive overtime pay.

Non-Exempt Employees

Non-exempt employees may not work in excess of 40 hours per week without approval from their immediate supervisor and cannot be provided compensatory time off as a means to offset the overtime.   For overtime work, non-exempt hourly employees receive one and one-half times their regular hourly rate for (1) each hour of work in excess of 40 hours worked in a given work week or (2) each hour of work on the seventh consecutive workday within any week unless (a) the employee did not work more than forty (40) hours during the work week. For this purpose, the workweek is deemed to begin at 12:01 a.m. Sunday morning and conclude at 12:00 P.M., on the following Saturday. An employee who is required to work overtime early in a given week, may be asked to adjust their work schedule on subsequent days to avoid the necessity of paying overtime.
