Overtime (GBDD) (GBDD-R) (GDKA)

Employees classified as non-exempt under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), who work more than 40 hours in a work week, are entitled to overtime pay at the rate of 1½ times the regular hourly rate. Overtime pay, approved by the appropriate director/supervisor, is allowed in some circumstances. Requests for approval must be processed prior to the overtime worked, except in the case of an emergency. The standard work week extends from 12:01 a.m. on Sunday until 12:00 midnight on the following Saturday. Overtime not authorized, but still performed, must be paid under the FLSA; however, such unauthorized overtime may be grounds for dismissal of the employee.
