Exempt and Non­exempt

In accordance with the Fair Labor and Standards Act, exempt employees are not subject to minimum wage and overtime pay as well as other protections afforded non-exempt employees.  Exempt employees are usually salaried in terms of dollars per week, month, or year, as opposed to payment for an hour of work.  Requirements for executive exemption include being primarily a manager with supervision of employees and power to hire and fire. Requirements for administrative exemption include performing general tasks related to basic business operation at least 80% of the day without direct supervision.

Exempt employees are expected to complete job duties within a 40-hour week and there shall be no overtime pay or compensatory time when an employee exceeds 40-hours of work in a given week.

The Arc respects the value of family and personal time for its employees.  Employees who consistently work more than 40 hours per week shall discuss the situation with their immediate supervisor for resolution.

Non­exempt employees may be salaried or paid per a variety of other structures and are entitled to minimum wage with overtime.

Full­time or Part-time Regular Employees

Regular full­time employees are those who work 40 hours per week and have successfully completed the probationary period. Such employees are eligible for all fringe benefits.

Regular part-time employees are those who work at least 30 hours but less than 40 hours per week and have successfully completed the probationary period. Such part-time salaried employees are eligible for all fringe benefits and earn sick leave and vacation at a rate proportionate to the hours they work. Regular part-time employees that work less than 30 hours per week are not eligible for fringe benefits.

Regular or Temporary Employees

 Regular employees are hired without a specific termination date.

 Temporary employees have positions with/without a regular and defined work schedule for a defined period of time. Temporary employees are not eligible for benefits.
