|For purposes of salary administration and eligibility for overtime payments and employee benefits, PRO classifies its employees and other workers as follows:
Full time employees
Employees hired to work PRO’s normal, full-time, minimum forty (40) hour workweek on a regular basis. Such employees are “nonexempt” as defined below.
Part time/per diem employees
Employees hired to work fewer than forty (40) hours per week on a regularly scheduled or per diem basis. Such employees are “nonexempt” as defined below.
Nonexempt employees are required to be paid overtime at the rate of time and one half (i.e., one and one-half times) their regular rate of pay for all hours worked beyond forty (40) hours in a workweek, in accordance with applicable state and federal wage and hour laws. Employees will be paid at straight time (i.e., your regular hourly rate of pay) for all hours worked up to the fortieth hour in any given workweek.
Exempt employees are not required to be paid overtime, in accordance with applicable state and federal wage and hour laws, for work performed beyond forty (40) hours in a workweek. Executives and certain employees in administrative positions are typically exempt.
All employees of PRO are non-exempt unless you are notified otherwise during your orientation session. The CEO will inform you of any change in your status if you change positions during your employment as a result of a promotion, transfer, or otherwise.
Please direct any questions regarding your employment classification or exemption status to the CEO.
