Overtime

In addition to their regular time bi-weekly pay, which may include holiday pay or other paid leave, covered employees will receive overtime pay at a rate of 1.5 times the regular hourly rate of pay for all hours worked in addition to the assigned work schedule. Overtime is defined as hours worked in excess of the regular daily work schedule or in excess of the assigned 40-hour week on the 9-80 work schedule. Excluding sick leave, paid leave time shall be considered time worked for the purpose of computing overtime hours.

If an employee works on a holiday, in addition to the straight-time standard holiday pay, all actual hours worked on that holiday shall be compensated at the overtime rate of 1.5 times the actual hours worked.

Authorization for overtime work must be given in advance by the Department Head if the need for such overtime work can be anticipated during normal working hours. During evenings and weekends, the employee on stand-by duty is authorized to perform essential emergency work and to approve the overtime hours of one additional employee to assist when necessary. If more than one additional employee is needed to assist, then approval must be obtained from a supervisor or manager.
