Code No.: 411.2
CLASSIFIED EMPLOYEE WAGE AND OVERTIME COMPENSATION
Purpose: To provide consistency in wage and overtime compensation for classified personnel.
Policy: Each non-exempt employee compensated on an hour-by-hour basis, whether full-or part-time, permanent or temporary, will be paid no less than the prevailing minimum wage. Whenever a non-exempt employee must work more than forty hours in a given work week, the employee is compensated at one and one-half times their regular hourly wage rate. This compensation is in the form of overtime pay or compensatory time. Overtime will not be permitted without prior authorization of the superintendent or his/her designee.
Each non-exempt employee paid on an hour-by-hour basis must complete, sign, and turn in a daily time record showing the actual number of hours worked. Failure of the employee to maintain, or falsification of, a daily time record will be grounds for disciplinary action including but not limited to termination of employment.
Comptime usage, incurred only in limited situations, and approved by the Superintendent, must be used within the next pay period unless otherwise approved by the Superintendent.
It is the responsibility of the business manager to maintain wage records.
