    Reason for Policy                                                                    

    The Fair Labor Standards Act, as amended, classifies employee positions as either “exempt” or “nonexempt.” The FLSA classification designation of a position determines how employees may be paid, among other things, for hours worked in excess of forty (40) hours per week and whether or not they are subject to the minimum wage and overtime provisions of the FLSA.
