Overtime Pay/Compensatory Time Off   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

It is the intent of the district to provide enough classified personnel to handle the average workload within the district. It is accepted that extra work may be necessary during various peak load periods or in the case of unexpected emergencies. It is the intent of the district, consistent with the request of an employee, to provide compensatory time off for overtime work to the extent that cash payment is not required by the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act.

For purposes of this policy, overtime shall be considered any time worked over a 40-hour week and shall be compensated at time-and-one-half (in money or compensatory time off). In all cases, all overtime beyond 240 hours in a given year (160 overtime hours) shall be compensated in cash.

No overtime shall be allowed except as authorized by an employee's immediate administrative officer.
