Appendix C-Overtime /Comp Time Policy

Non-Exempt Full-time Employees

The library’s policy is to avoid, whenever possible, overtime for non-exempt staff. Overtime is defined as time worked above 40 hours in Library’s workweek. If overtime is necessary, non-exempt employees are eligible for compensatory time in lieu of overtime payments at the rate of one and one-half (1 1/2) hours for each hour of overtime worked.

Overtime does not include hours worked in excess of 8 hours a day unless more than 40 hours are worked in Library’s one-week pay period. Under the FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act), vacation, holidays, and sick leave will not be considered as time worked in computing overtime.

Comp-time must be taken within three (3) months from when the overtime was worked.

Part-time Exempt and Non-Exempt Employees

The Fair Labor Standards Act applies to employees working over 40 hours a week. When part-time staff members work more hours than their normal workweek, they are paid on a straight-time, hour-for-hour basis. Supervisors must approve, in advance, additional hours for part-time staff. If part-time employees work over 40 hours a week, the library’s overtime, flextime and comp-time policies for non-exempt full-time staff will apply, as appropriate.
