Overtime Compensation

Positions at UO are determined to be eligible or ineligible for overtime compensation based on federal law (Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, or "FLSA").  Non-exempt employees are eligible for overtime compensation of 1.5 times the regular rate for all hours over 40 in the workweek.  Exempt employees are not eligible for overtime compensation.  The majority of classified positions and some unclassified positions at UO are eligible for overtime compensation.  Temporary and student employees are non-exempt and are eligible for overtime compensation. 

Positions covered by the OUS-SEIU/OPEU Collective Bargaining Agreement have additional provisions for payment of overtime to eligible classified staff.  Non-exempt employees are eligible for 1.5 times the regular rate for all hours over 8 hours in one day or over 40 in the workweek.  Some classified employees work a flexible workweek and have signed a flexible work agreement.  These employees are eligible for overtime compensation for hours over 40 in one week.  Exempt classified employees earn exchange time (compensatory time) for all hours worked over 40 in a week at the straight time rate.
