4 FLSA Identifies two types of employees NON-EXEMPT Hourly employees Compensated at time-and-one half for time worked in excess of 40 hours per week ESPBC employees EXEMPT Salaried employees Do not receive overtime compensation Executive, Administrative, Professional, etc. classifications

5 FLSA requires employers to... Compensate all non-exempt employees for ALL hours worked Overtime compensation for hours worked beyond 40 hours per work week Pay employees federal minimum wage Maintain wage and hour record keeping

6 Effect of ESPBC Master Agreement Should the Master Agreement provide employee benefits beyond the guidelines in FLSA, the agreements will prevail Breaks (example) Employers not required to provide under FLSA Master Agreement provisions establish guidelines for breaks Information combination of FLSA & ESPBC agreement guidelines

7 Overtime (OT) Hours worked over 40 hours in a work week are considered OT Hours worked beyond 40 must be compensated at a rate of time and one half vacation, paid leave, and holiday pay are not treated as hours worked

8 Overtime (OT) Must be pre-approved by a supervisor Either paid time or compensatory time (agreed upon) Employee, with approval, may adjust their schedule during the work week to offset extended work days These adjustments should occur in the same work week

9 Gap Time Time worked beyond the normal work week up to 40 hours is “gap time” 40 hours per week – 37.5 hours per week = 2.5 hours gap time Paid at the regular hourly rate of pay ( not time and one half ) Must be pre-approved by supervisor

10 Compensatory (Comp) Time Paid time off which is earned and accrued in lieu of cash payment for work in excess of regular weekly schedule Earned hour for hour for ‘gap time’ Earned at a rate of one and one half hours beyond 40 hours per week

11 Using Comp Time Preferred – within the same or next pay period after accrued FLSA – states within a ‘reasonable time period’ ESPBC Agreement – states must be used by the end of the school/fiscal year

12 Responsibilities for Administrator/Supervisor Monitor employees time Review requests for work extending beyond the work schedule Determine if schedule can be adjusted within a work week Report comp time and overtime appropriately Ensure comp time is utilized in accordance with ESPBC Counsel and/or provide disciplinary action to employees who do not comply with OT or comp time procedures
