The normal work week is 40 hours. There are times when overtime hours are required. Overtime hours are defined only as those worked over 40 hours within a given work week. Holiday hours, Paid Time Off hours, Earned Sick and Safe Time hours, and miscellaneous paid time hours are not counted as “worked” for determination of overtime applicability within a work week. Any non-exempt employees working more than 40 hours in any one week shall be paid at the rate of one and one-half times the regular rate for hours actually worked in excess of 40 hours in one work week.

All overtime must receive advanced approval from the supervisor.  Repeated instances of overtime without prior approval will result in corrective action up to and including termination of employment. All overtime hours must be included in the employee’s work week. No compensatory time off can be given in lieu of paying overtime. Supervisors may not authorize this activity for hourly employees; it is illegal and will not be tolerated.
