It is expected that most work will be done within a normal 40-hour work. However, overtime work may be authorized for employees who are not exempt from the provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act only when the work is deemed necessary by the immediate supervisor with prior approval granted by the Vice President for Business and Finance. An employee may not work more than 40 hours a week unless specific prior authorization is given. Payment for overtime will be made in accordance with the Fair Labor Standards Act. Exempt employees are not eligible for overtime pay. Exempt employees are employed on a job basis and are expected to perform their duties for whatever periods of work may be required.
