Overtime Compensation (Nonexempt Employees)
Employees may be required to work extended hours. Employees who anticipate the need for overtime to complete the week’s work must request approval from their supervisor before working hours that extend beyond their normal schedule. Supervisors are required to obtain approval from managers prior to the use of overtime.
Overtime compensation for nonexempt employees who exceed 40 hours of work time in a workweek will be computed on a time and one half basis. Work on Sunday or holidays will be computed on a double time basis.
The workweek begins at 12:00 a.m. on Sunday morning and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday night. Paid leave, such as regularly scheduled leave, sick leave, or vacation leave, does not apply toward work time.
Compensatory time may only be accumulated after completion of a normal workweek as defined above. No more than 14 hours of compensatory time shall be accumulated in one month. Hours accumulated over 14 will be paid, based on the employee’s hourly rate of pay after all appropriate documentation has been reviewed. Employee’s accumulated compensatory time can be paid as overtime or accumulated at the election of the employee.
Compensatory time may be taken at the employee’s discretion so long as the orderly functioning of the College is not undermined and proper notice has been given to the appropriate supervisor.
Employees shall document compensatory time taken and earned on the monthly time record.
