Overtime Pay

  • Non-exempt employees: A non-exempt employee working over 40 hours in a given work week will be paid time and one-half for hours worked over 40 during that week. It is contrary to federal law to permit “compensatory” time (time off taken in the following time period in lieu of overtime).  Employees must have overtime authorized by the appropriate supervisor before working overtime hours. Holiday pay and any other paid leave will not be included when calculating hours worked for determining whether the employee is eligible for overtime.
  • Exempt employees: not eligible for overtime pay.
