Pay Plan Occupational Information

Overtime Pay Category Codes Under the Rules and Regulations of the Personnel Advisory Board

0  Top level supervisory, managerial and administrative staff and persons employed in very responsible professional, technical or consultative capacities who do not normally receive overtime compensation except in unusual circumstances as determined by appointing authorities.

1  Other supervisory, professional, technical and related positions that are compensated for overtime at a straight time rate.

2  Other categories of employees who are compensated for overtime at the rate of time and one-half.

[Please refer to 1 CSR 20-5.010(1) and 1 CSR 20-5.020(3).] Please note that employees in Category 2 are normally considered to be covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended. A majority of, if not all, positions within a job classification coded with an overtime code of 1 are believed to be exempt from the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act. However, under the Act, determinations by the Department of Labor regarding non-exempt or exempt status are made on an individual position rather than a class basis, and coverage standards are applied on a workweek basis (least period of time for which an exemption may be disallowed). It is conceivable that individual employees could fluctuate between exempt/non-exempt status, based on changing assignments or workloads. Therefore, if it is necessary to deviate from the established class codes in making overtime payments in individual cases, these are to be reviewed and approved, and the necessary documentation maintained on an individual position basis by appointing authorities or their designees.
