EFFECTIVE DATE:
APPROVAL:

No employee may work overtime without prior and expressed authorization from their supervisor. If employees (except for exempt personnel) are required to work beyond their regular schedule, they will be paid on a straight time basis up to forty (40) hours in one work week, or they may be granted compensatory time off if this is taken within the same work week. After forty (40) hours, payment at one and one-half times the normal rate is paid for hours actually worked. Compensation is not paid for time spent on meal breaks.

Seventh Circuit | Half a Loaf: Court Rejects ADA "Safe Harbor" But Approves Pre-Regulations Wellness Program as "Voluntary" The EEOC’s attack on employee wellness programs as unlawful under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) that began in 2014 with three lawsuits, and continued with more recent regulations under these laws, has taken another turn. On September 19, 2016, a federal court in Wisconsin denied the EEOC’s summary judgment motion in one of the three cases that directly challenged an employer’s wellness program requiring employees who sought health plan coverage with a wellness component to undergo a medical examination or pay higher premiums.
