The Position Management Section administers the classification and pay system and the Hours of Work and Overtime Compensation Policy. Each position is assigned a formal classification title and corresponding salary grade, based on position design and within established guidelines provided by the Office of State Human Resources.
The Hours of Work and Overtime Compensation Policy complies with the Fair Labor Standards Act. This Policy ensures that employees must be paid not less than the established minimum wage and provides guidelines on overtime compensation. Employees who are determined to be subject to the Hours of Work and Overtime Compensation Policy must be paid at a premium time and one-half rates or granted equal time off for hours worked in excess of 40 within a week.
