Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) determines whether employees are subject to or exempt from overtime provisions. If employees are non-exempt, they must receive overtime pay for working more than 40 hours a week.
When non-exempt employees work over 40 hours during their scheduled workweek, they are entitled to time-and-a-half pay for all hours actually worked in excess of 40 hours. All overtime for non-exempt employees should be approved in advance by their supervisor.
You can check an employee's job title in the TTU Pay Plan to determine if the job is exempt or non-exempt.
