POL 5.360 Overtime Compensation

The college will provide proper compensation to nonexempt employees who work more than 40 hours in a standard work week as defined by the Fair Labor Standards Act. Nonexempt employees required to work over 40 hours in a standard work week will receive overtime compensation at 1 1/2 times their regular rate of pay. Compensatory time will be allowed only to the extent that it complies with the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Adopted January 13, 1994

PRO 5.360 OVERTIME COMPENSATION

Necessary overtime work must be authorized by the immediate supervisor. Supervisors must make every reasonable effort to control the use of overtime and to prevent its indiscriminate use.

All overtime shall be listed separately for each employee on the employee’s time sheet.

Overtime shall be paid at the rate of time and one-half the base rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week.

Paid time off (holidays, vacation days, business days, sick days, etc.) are not counted as time worked in the calculation of overtime. Paid time off as a result of emergency closings (snow days, electrical outages, etc.) will be counted as time worked in the calculation of overtime.

Compensatory time may be given at the rate of time and one-half for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week in lieu of overtime pay at the discretion of the immediate supervisor.

Once underpayments are identified, they will be corrected in the next regular paycheck. Overpayments will also be corrected in the next regular paycheck unless this presents a burden to the employee (where there is a substantial amount owed). In that case, the payroll department will attempt to arrange a schedule of repayments with the employee to minimize the inconvenience to all involved.
