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.
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.
