Bargaining Unit employees and selected clerical employees who are not part of the Bargaining Unit (such as confidential secretaries) have the option of selecting compensatory time (banked time) or payment for overtime hours worked between 36.25 hours per week and 40 hours per week. Only those hours worked between 36.25 hours per week and 40 hours per week are eligible for the compensatory time (banked time) option.
Any hourly employee who works in excess of 40 hours per week must be recorded as such on that pay period’s time sheet and will be paid at one and one-half times the rate of regular pay, as required by federal law.
Any time spent by an hourly (non-exempt) employee utilizing electronic communications for work purposes is considered hours worked, is compensable, and will count toward overtime eligibility as required by law. Hourly employees should not check for, read, send, or respond to work-related e-mails/voicemails, outside of the normal work schedule. Electronic communications should not be used outside of regularly scheduled work hours unless authorized by the supervisor to do so.
