Summary :  Reference for all employees who have inquiries about FLSA, or the Fair Labor Standards Act, and their status as either Exempt or Non-Exempt employees. Audience: Managers, Supervisors, Employees


Primary Information

    At Tufts University there are three classifications of employees: 
    1. Hourly employees: paid for hours worked plus hours beyond their normal schedule as approved by the supervisor.  These employees are non-exempt typically designated on the basis of the duties they perform and are paid on an hourly basis.
    2. Salaried Non-Exempt:  Hold same benefits as exempt but are required to submit hours worked.  They are paid for hours worked plus hours beyond their normal schedule as approved by the supervisor.  They are eligible for overtime.  These are employees who satisfy the duties tests for exemption from the FLSA but who are designated non-exempt on the basis of the FLSA minimum salary threshold and are paid on a weekly basis.
    3. Salaried - work as many hours as it takes to get the job done and are not eligible for overtime.

    For Hourly and Salaried Non-Exempt employees enter time weekly through Time Entry. Hourly employees must have time entered to be paid while Salaried Non-Exempt hours can default to their standard hours if nothing is different for that week.  For Salaried employees enter time off through Time Off Tracking.
