OVERTIME SAMPLE

Non-exempt employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act are eligible for overtime for all hours worked in excess of 40 in any work week. We hope you will comply with any requests to work overtime. The Company will also try to give you as much notice as possible when overtime will be mandated. All overtime designated by your manager is approved overtime. If an employee works overtime without approval, the overtime must be paid, however the employee may be subject to disciplinary action.

Overtime is paid at the rate of one-and-one-half times (1-½x) your regular hourly rate of pay. No non-worked lunch, sick, holiday or vacation time is included in calculating overtime.
