(A) The official work week for all employees of the town, except the Police Department personnel, is a seven-day period beginning at 12:01 a.m. Saturday and ending at 11:59 p.m. on Friday. The normal five-day, or 40-hour, work week is Monday through Friday. The Superintendent will adjust the work schedule of the Utilities and Street employees to maintain coverage from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Due to the operating requirements of the water and wastewater utilities, some minimal work is required on weekends and holidays. The Superintendent will fairly assign those abnormal working hours to trained employees. Every effort must be taken to maintain the 40-hour work week for those employees working more than the normal work week.
(B) The Town Council determines the number of hours worked by a non-exempt employee for the compensation to be received, subject to laws and regulation governing pay and working hours, and subject to the provisions of the town budget. Employees are expected to report punctually for duty at the beginning of their assigned workday and to work their full day.
(C) Employees for the town that are classified as Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), being 29 U.S.C. §§ 201 et seq., non-exempt employees must complete 40 hours of time worked in a week prior to accumulating overtime hours. All non-exempt employees must submit time sheets to maintain an accurate accounting of time worked.
(D) Holiday paid time off shall be considered as time worked. All overtime must be approved by the Superintendent or department head unless it is an emergency. All overtime hours will be paid through compensatory time off. Compensatory time off will be calculated and one and one-half times the number of overtime hours worked. Compensatory time off must be taken off by the end of the twenty-fourth pay period after the pay period during which the overtime was earned. Accumulated compensatory time off shall not exceed 80 hours. The Town Council shall review the accumulated compensatory time of each employee at the beginning of the town budget cycle to determine if the employee shall be paid for the earned compensatory time off. If the Council determines an employee(s) will be paid for the compensatory time off, the payment will be reflected in the salary ordinance for the following year. The payment for compensatory time off will be paid at the rate in effect when earned.
(E) The official work week for the Police Department personnel is defined in I.C. 36-5-7.
