College Policies I Overtime

During certain peak periods, additional work may be required during a normal workweek. Only non-exempt employees are eligible for overtime compensation; exempt employees are not eligible for overtime compensation.  All overtime must  be directed  and  approved  by the  employee’s supervisor in advance. Supervisors should seek approval of substantial overtime commitments from the appropriate management prior to assigning overtime work.

For the purpose  of  computing  overtime,  a workweek  is  defined  as  Saturday  through  Friday.  Hours worked up to 40 hours are paid at the employee’s regular hourly rate of pay. Overtime wages at one and a half times the employee’s normal hourly rate will be paid for work in excess of 40 hours per week.  Approved leave time will count as hours worked.
