Pay Policies and Practices

Overtime

Overtime pay will no longer apply to hours in paid status in excess of eight hours a day. Nonexempt employees will now receive overtime pay for all hours in paid status in excess of 40 hours in a single workweek.

Because of the change in policy, it will no longer be necessary to indicate on the timecard when an employee’s schedule ‘flexes’ between workdays.

Callback Pay

Nonexempt, benefits-eligible employees receive callback pay when, after leaving a scheduled work shift, the employee is required to return to the workplace outside of the employee’s normal work schedule.

Callback pay is not provided when extra work is scheduled in advance or when employees are asked to extend their regular work shifts (either to stay beyond the end of the shift or to report to work early).

Employees eligible for callback pay will receive a premium payment equal to two hours of regular pay. This is in addition to being compensated for all hours worked at the regular rate (or overtime rate, if applicable). All time worked in callback status is included to determine overtime eligibility, but the callback premium itself is not included when calculating overtime eligibility.

When callback applies, the employee should record 2.0 hours with the code “CB” on the appropriate day on the timecard in addition to recording the actual regular and/or overtime hours worked that day.
