38 Supervisor function: part-time
Part-time hours MUST be under 29 hours per week. NO EXCEPTIONS! The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is major legislation. ACA has changed how the agency will manage hours worked. Due to the ACA, any minute over 29 hours pushes an employee into full-time status. ACA requires that employee hours be sent to the IRS monthly. Supervisors and Directors will be held accountable for hours worked over 29 hours. Any supervisor who manipulates the system to gain employees full-time employment by using added hours will be disciplined immediately up to and including termination. UPDATED JANUARY 24, 2014

39 Supervisor function: part-time
Orientation time can not be more than 29 hours in a week. FT hourly employees (non-exempt salary) can NOT work to cover part-time hours if it creates overtime. FT exempt salary employees CAN work to cover PT hours. Recommendation: PT employees should be given a set schedule to assist in organizing schedules and managing time. Another way to look at the schedule is “job sharing”. One employee may work every M, T, W for 8 hours and a different person will work every Th, F for 8 hours for the same position. If new positions are needed, then a schedule by program that uses PT employees will be required to be submitted to HR and the CFO listing all positions (both FT and PT) and the hours worked. This documentation is due by January 15, This requirement applies mostly to DD residential and MH/SA residential. UPDATED JANUARY 24, 2014

40 Supervisor function: part-time
HCS employees can NOT be used to cover CSB hours and create overtime. HCS employees can NOT work overtime. HCS employees are covered under the federal ACA laws. The CSB PAYS for the salary and any benefits to HCS which means that the CSB will pay the cost of benefits for HCS employees if the individuals work over 29 hours per week. The CSB will continue to have discussions during 2014 on how the agency determines the total number of hours that HCS employees will work. UPDATED JANUARY 24, 2014

41 Action items Payroll will run dual systems until further notice.
Payroll will need to determine that the electronic system is working properly. Employees MUST continue to do the paper processes along with the new electronic processes until further notice.

Employees will start the electronic process the day of training. 100% of employees will need to be trained by January 15, 2014. Contractors/Vendors and HCS will NOT be using this electronic system. UPDATED JANUARY 24, 2014

42 Supervisor function: policies
Employees MUST clock in and out for lunch/meal breaks. Employees are NOT paid for personal time. Exceptions to clocking in/out for lunch/meal breaks MUST be approved by CEO, CFO, or HR Director. The only employees with an exception are because they eat with clients. Not all employees working in a program will receive the exception. Employees must take 1 hour for lunch/meal breaks.

Employees can not note lunch/meal breaks in the comments box rather than clocking in/out. UPDATED JANUARY 24, 2014

43 Supervisor function: policies
An employee should NEVER try to adjust a clocking time in or out because the employee clocked in or out late. For example, an employee clocked in 18 minutes late from lunch and tried to clock in 18 minutes early the next day to “make up the time”. If an employee tries to adjust time for a clocking error as described above, the employee WILL RECEIVE DISCIPLINARY ACTION - TERMINATION. The agency considers this “gaming the system” and consequences will apply. The employee should have brought this issue to the supervisor to correct. UPDATED JANUARY 24, 2014

44 Supervisor function: policies
If an employee misses a clock out function at the end of a shift, then the employee should clock out immediately when arriving at work and clock in. The employee should give this information to their supervisor to correct. Employees should also know that a pattern of missed punches will be cause for disciplinary action – termination. Supervisors must watch for a pattern of missed clock ins or clock outs as the employee may be trying to cover up if he/she is coming in later or leaving work early. UPDATED JANUARY 24, 2014

45 Supervisor function: common errors

All employees must sign the timesheets. Do not put mileage comments in the timesheet comment box as you will not be paid mileage. You must enter mileage in the expense tab. Mileage must have descriptions. Do NOT approve mileage/expense forms with no comments. Send comment/message back to employee to correct. Remember that late mileage will NOT be paid.
