Employee Policy Regarding Hours of Work, Overtime and Pay Days

Hours of Work Company work hours are [_____] a.m. to [______] p.m. Monday through Friday, with one hour for lunch. Non-exempt employees receive two ten-minute paid break periods for each full workday, one at mid-morning and one at mid-afternoon, and are expected to take a lunch or meal break midway through their shift. Overtime All non-exempt employees who work more than eight hours in one workday will receive overtime pay at the rate of 1½ times the employee’s regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 8 hours in one workday or 40 hours in one work week, or in any higher amounts required by law. Overtime will be computed on actual time worked. Only those hours that are actually worked are added together to determine an employee’s overtime pay. Compensated holidays, for example, are not hours worked and, therefore, are not counted in making overtime calculations. Unless otherwise provided: (1) the workweek on which overtime calculations will be based begins each Sunday at midnight; and (2) each workday on which daily overtime calculations will be based begins at midnight. Nonexempt employees may not work overtime without the express prior written approval of his or her supervisor. Pay Periods Employees are paid [every other Friday] [twice a month, on the 1st and the 15th]. If a pay day falls on a holiday, paychecks will be distributed on the preceding workday. The Company does not cash employee payroll checks nor provides advances on employee wages. Timesheets Employees must submit work hours in writing to their supervisor prior to each payday for approval in accordance with Company policy. It is critical that every employee’s time sheet be completed daily and reflects the employee’s hours accurately. Falsifying a time sheet or inaccurately calculating time may result in termination of employment.
