Job Classification:

Your job at the University is given a classification based on the duties and responsibilities involved. Periodic reviews, audits, and modifications may be made to assure the continuing accuracy of these classifications.

Exempt employees are “exempt” from the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA) overtime and pay regulations.Typical exempt employees include administrators, directors, managers, faculty, researchers, and analysts.

Non-Exempt employees are subject to the minimum wage and overtime provisions of FLSA. Typical non-exempt employees include secretaries, office assistants, bookkeepers, and technicians. All non-exempt employees are required to maintain individual time records of hours worked on a weekly basis.

FLSA establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, record-keeping, and child labor standards.The law provides that the employer “shall not permit” employees to work overtime (more than 40 hours per work week) without payment of an overtime premium.

For most classifications, a minimum and maximum pay range is established. Your job may be considered for reclassification if duties and responsibilities have significantly changed.

This process is initiated by your supervisor and coordinated with the appropriate Human Resources office.
