Overtime Pay

Occasionally, rush seasons, peak workload periods, and certain emergency situations may require overtime work in your department. All overtime work must be approved prior to the date it is worked.

Under federal law, most of our classified employees must receive overtime compensation. These employees are called "non-exempt" for overtime pay purposes and are eligible for pay or compensatory time off at the rate of time-and-one-half for hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week.

Employees in executive, administrative, and professional positions are generally "exempt" from federal overtime provisions. There are extraordinary situations, however, where exempt personnel can receive overtime compensation. Some exempt positions are represented by a union, with its own contractual provisions for overtime pay.
