Overtime eligible - documenting hours worked
All state agencies require overtime eligible employees to document hours worked. This is in addition to any leave or overtime slips you already turn in.
State agencies must establish an internal process, begin communicating this requirement to their employees, and train employees on how to fill out a Time & Attendance Record*.
This time-tracking requirement ensures the state is complying with federal law. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires records be kept on total hours worked each day and each workweek for employees in overtime eligible positions to determine when they are eligible to receive overtime compensation.
* If your agency already has a form and process that meets the federal requirements, there is no need to change.
Below are some tools to help you communicate this requirement to your employees:
