Working Hours and Workweek Policy



A work hour is any hour of the day in which an employee has worked and should be recorded to the nearest tenth of an hour (6 minutes equals’ one tenth). The workday is defined as the 24-hour period starting at 12:00am and ending at 11:59pm. The workweek covers seven consecutive days beginning on Sunday and ending on Saturday. The usual workweek period is 40 hours. Hours worked during any workday will fall into the day that a majority of the hours worked fell into. As an example if an employee began working at 11:00pm on Monday and ended at 7:30am on Tuesday the total hours worked during that shift/workday would be counted on Tuesday. Authorized overtime will be paid in accordance with state and federal law.
