Overtime

Employees in positions categorized as non-exempt receive pay at one-and-one-half (1.5) times their hourly rate for any hours worked in excess of forty (40) during any given workweek. Leave time will not count as hours worked for purposes of computing overtime earned in a week.

”Employees in positions categorized as exempt do not receive overtime pay; however, the city has a compensatory time leave program for such employees that grants leave time for hours worked in excess of forty (40) hours per week. The employee will be informed of these categories upon hire and upon any subsequent changes.

Supervisors are responsible for monitoring operational needs and requesting overtime work if it is necessary. In this regard, every effort will be made to provide employees with adequate advance notice in such situations.

For the purpose of calculating overtime for non-exempt employees whose work shift starts one day and ends on another, time will be credited to the day on which the shift started up to 12 p.m. on Monday. The city does not provide non-exempt employees the option of accruing compensatory time in lieu of overtime payment. Employees may work overtime only with prior management authorization.
