161.15 OVERTIME FOR EMPLOYEES.
Exempt employees are not entitled to overtime pay as guaranteed by the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA"). In general, to be considered an "exempt" employee, the employee must be paid a salary (not hourly) and must perform executive, administrative or professional duties.

I. Clerk of Council
J. IT Manager
K. Other positions as determined by the Mayor and approved by City Council
(b) Employees whose job positions are not listed in (a)(1) above shall receive overtime compensation in the form of overtime pay. Overtime pay is calculated at one and one-half times the employee's regular rate of pay. Any payment for overtime shall be paid no later than at the conclusion of the next succeeding pay period. Overtime pay shall not be paid unless authorized by the employee's Department Director, or designee.
(c) In lieu of overtime, compensatory time shall be taken at the rate of one and one-half times the overtime hours worked. Non-union non-exempt employees may accumulate a compensatory time bank of forty (40) hours. Compensatory time off may be used in increments of no fewer than two (2) hours, and must be approved by the Department Director, or designee, at least twenty-four (24) hours in advance. It is understood that the employee will choose if overtime is to be taken as compensatory time.
(d) Standard Work Week. For purposes of overtime calculation, an average of forty (40) hours shall be the standard work week for full-time employees. Actual hours worked shall include excused sick leave, holidays and vacations, but shall not include hours taken for unexcused sick leave or any other reason.
(e) Call Out. When an employee is called in for duty, he/she shall be compensated at the overtime rate of pay for all hours worked, but shall not receive less than two (2) hours' pay. (Ord. 2019-085. Passed 6-24-19.)
