Overtime Compensation Policy 418.06

Johnson County Community College
Series: 400 Personnel
Section: Compensation and Benefits

All full-time employees of the College will ordinarily be expected to work a regular forty (40) hour week. Full-time salaried employees are expected to complete their duties and obligations of their position and may be required to exceed forty (40) hours per week and are not entitled to overtime compensation.

All hourly (non-exempt) employees of the College working in excess of forty (40) hours per work week will be entitled to overtime pay at the rate of one and one half times the appropriate calculated rate of pay in accordance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Overtime hours must be approved by the supervisor in advance. All time worked shall be reported on the employee's timesheet covering the pay period in which the time was worked. Hours worked for the purposes of determining overtime pay shall include holidays, bereavement leave and jury duty. Hourly employees who work on a designated College holiday may reschedule the holiday to another scheduled work day. Annual leave time (including vacation, personal days and floating holidays), sick leave days and unpaid absences shall not be included as part of the regular forty (40) hours in terms of determining overtime.

If employees are required to work overtime, compensatory time may be granted in lieu of overtime pay if there is an emergency or extraordinary situation and approvals are granted as follows. Compensatory time, if granted in lieu of overtime pay, must be approved on a case by case basis in advance by the appropriate executive vice president or vice president, and agreed to by the employee and the employee's supervisor. Any such approved compensatory time shall be granted at time and one half off for overtime hours worked, and compensatory time shall be used within the fiscal year in which it is earned or it will be paid out to the employee. Accumulated hours of compensatory time shall not exceed 80 hours, and it is the supervisor's responsibility to report accurate records of all compensatory time earned and used in accordance with procedures established through the Office of Human Resources.
