OVERTIME PRE-APPROVAL

    Overtime compensation is paid at the rate of one and one-half times a staff member’s regular
pay for work completed over 40 hours in one week. Paid time off within a workweek (holiday,
sick leave, vacation leave, etc.) does not count toward the 40 hours needed before earning
overtime. You will be paid at your regular hourly rate for approved time beyond regular time
during a week for which you had paid time off. Per School Board Policy 540.10, “every claim
for overtime must be pre-approved by the employee’s supervisor.” A staff member may elect to
take compensation time (one and one-half hours times the amount overtime worked) instead of
receiving overtime pay. Compensation time needs to be used within 30 days of being earned.
Unused compensation time will be paid as overtime at the end of 30 days.
