Thread: 9/80 Work Schedule adn Overtime Pennsylvania

  1. #1

    Default 9/80 Work Schedule adn Overtime Pennsylvania

    I have recently been moved to a non-exempt employee from an exempt employee due to reclassification in job titles.

    We work a 9 / 80 work schedule and recently a project has required Overtime to ensure it's completion and now the question regarding Overtime are coming up and I can not get a good enough answer as to how it is paid out or accounted for from our payroll department.

    Our schedule is

    Week one

    Mon - Thurs is a 9 hour day.
    Fri is an 8 hour day

    Week Two

    Mon - Thurs is a 9 hour day with that Fri off.

    I have the following email from our payroll regarding how hours are calculated for pay:

    Week 1
    M T W H F
    9 9 9 9 8(4 hours are listed on this Friday and 4 hrs are carried to the flex Friday that you do not work)

    Week 2
    M T W H F
    9 9 9 9 4(4 hours from the previously worked Friday)


    My understanding and from some searching on this site is that in PA you can not carry hours from week to the next and accoutnign 4 hours on my off friday when I am not here opens the company to a whole legal aspect if I am doing my research correct.

    Any help that can be shed as to how this is accurate is appreciated and any sources I can research to prove my case in that hours worked during the week should be paid out for that pay period is appreciated greatly.

    Thank you,

    Well, to start with, if you are correctly classified as exempt there are no circumstances whatsoever under which you are entitled to overtime at all. That's what exempt means - exempt from overtime.

    So before we can determine whether or not any overtime is due, we need to establish whether you are exempt or not. To that end, we need you to give us as detailed a breakdown as possible of what you actually do on a day to day basis.

    Sorry but you read his first sentence incorrectly.... he was just moved to a non-exempt position from an exempt one.

    Do you know what your defined pay period week is?

    You're right; I did read it backwards. Mea culpa.

    I am not sure as to what they are using as the defined wage period is. it is one of the questions I am waiting for a response too.

    It has historically been Monday at 12:01 thourgh Sunday at Midnight, however we are under a new ownership 2 years ago and that has not been widely clarified to the workforce.

    You'll have to confirm that. There is a way to construct the workweek so that a 9/80 doesn't result in overtime in either week.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
