Overtime Agreement Form
Do I need to fill out this form?
If you are in a full-time position that
is subject to the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act,
If you are not sure about your position, ask your supervisor
or HR representative if you are in a "subject" or
"non-exempt" position. If your position
is "subject" "or non-exempt"
you will need to sign and date this form. If
your position is "exempt" you may skip this
form by clicking the forward arrow at the bottom of
What does this policy mean?
If your position falls into this category, there are
federal laws that say that you must be paid or be
given time off at the rate of "time
and a half" for
any hours worked over 40 in a week. DHHS has elected
to give "comp time" rather than overtime pay whenever
possible, so this form is your acknowledgement that
you understand this policy and realize that you cannot
"demand" overtime pay instead of comp time.
|Example: Mike is a full time "subject" employee.
One week, he works 45 hours at the request of his
supervisor. He earns comp time at the rate of "time-and-a-half" for
the 5 hours he worked over 40. So, at a later date
(with the approval of his supervisor), he will
be able to take time off ("comp time")
of 7 hours 30 minutes.
are some additional important facts:
- You should always get approval from your
supervisor before working extra hours.
- If you do earn comp time for overtime
must use that comp time within 12 months from
the date earned or be paid for the overtime.
- If you are a temporary "subject" employee
who works overtime, you will be paid at
the "time and a half"
than earning comp time.
