What does this change mean to MURC?

  • INCREASED nonexempt (overtime eligible) employees.
  • MANAGERS will have to manage overtime more closely. Overtime will need to be approved and budgeted in advance.
  • EMPLOYEES converted from exempt to non-exempt will have to be paid overtime pay for all hours worked over 40 int he work week. This may also include compensatory time.
  • Checking email and doing work outside of the normal work schedule will change the way these converted employees accomplish their "day-to-day" work after January 1, 2020.
  • Converted employees are now eligible for overtime. They must track hours worked on the new MURC Non-Exempt Employee Timesheet.
  • Track all hours worked, observe start/stop times, and observe meal and break periods.
