402.10 - Classified Personnel Workweek, Wage, and Overtime Compensation/Compensatory Time

The district workweek begins on Saturday and ends on Friday. Regular work hours during the school year are determined by the needs of the district and will be designated by the responsible administrator. Administrators will document regular employee work hours. Arrangements that deviate from regular work hours for more than two weeks will be documented prior to the arrangement commencing. The standard workday for classified hourly personnel is up to eight hours, of which all employees are expected to work in full. The standard workweek for classified hourly personnel is up to 40 hours, as determined by administration.

Time worked includes all time that an employee is required to be physically at work. Time worked is used to determine overtime pay and/or compensatory time required for classified personnel. Classified personnel will not be permitted to perform work away from the premises, job site, or at home unless approved in advance by the superintendent [or designee]. The district does not count approved paid leave or uninterrupted lunch periods as time worked unless expressly permitted in a collective bargaining agreement.

Each non-exempt employee compensated on an hour-by-hour basis [whether full-time or part-time, permanent or temporary] will be paid no less than the prevailing minimum wage. Whenever a non-exempt hourly employee must work more than 40 hours in a given work week, the employee is compensated at one-and-one-half times their regular hourly wage rate in excess of 40 hours. This compensation is in the form of overtime pay or compensatory time. Overtime will not be permitted without prior documented authorization of the direct supervisor. Compensatory time will not be allowed unless documented and permitted in a collective bargaining agreement.

Each non-exempt employee paid on an hour-by-hour basis must submit a daily record showing the actual number of hours worked. Failure of the employee to maintain or falsification of a daily time record will be grounds for disciplinary action up to and including termination.
