Section 3: Hours & Wages

3.1 TYPES OF POSITIONS AND WORK HOURS

The work week for all employees is Sunday through Saturday. There are three types of position catagories:  Regular Full-time, Regular Part-time and Part-time. A regular full-time position is one in which the employee’s regularly worked hours are 40 hours per week. A regular part-time position is one in which the employee’s regularly worked hours are at least 30 hours per week.  A part-time position is one in which the employee’s regularly worked hours are less than 30 hours per week.  Overtime is ordinarily not scheduled due to budgetary and staff limitations. In an emergency, overtime work may be scheduled or approved by the Executive Director.

Some professional, administrative, and managerial positions are exempted from overtime provisions by the Fair Labor Standards Act. Exempted positions include: Executive Director, Human Resources Manager, Chief Fiscal Officer, Directors, and employees in Band C and above who manage two or more fulltime employees. Time worked over 40 hours in any one work week by persons in these positions may be compensated by straight time off (1:1) to be taken during the following week. If compensating time needs to be carried longer than one week, permission must be granted by the Executive Director.

FLSA Non-exempt Employees:

Time worked over 40 hours in any one work week by non-exempt employees shall be compensated at a rate of time and a half off (1:1.5) to be scheduled during the following week. If compensating time needs to be carried longer than one week, permission must be granted by the Executive Director.

3.2 STUDENT INTERNSHIPS AND PRACTICUMS

CRCPL periodically employs student interns for periods when they are not in school and students who are in need of formal practicums as part of their undergrad or graduate program.  These paid opportunities will be approved and advertised in accordance with established hiring procedures.

An abbreviated orientation program will be provided by the department director and will highlight key aspects of the position they will be engaged in as well as all company policies with which he or she will be expected to conform during the specific term of employment. This orientation will exclude any discussion of programs and policies, including many of the benefits plans, which do not apply to specific-term employees.

Department orientation. Each intern will be provided with an in-depth review of department functions and activities and the interaction of these activities with the work the student worker will be performing. The department review will be conducted by the department manager and team leads during the first week of employment.

When the opportunity requires specific reporting requirements for college credit, the hiring Director will be responsible for meeting those requirements.

3.3 JOB CLASSIFICATIONS AND DESCRIPTIONS

Positions in the library are classified. Positions that are generally equivalent in the following respects: kind, complexity, and difficulty of duties; responsibility involved; and qualifications required, including education, technical training and experience; are grouped in the same classification.

A job description is a written statement of the essential functions of the job. These descriptions also contain information regarding the skills and abilities required in order to perform the essential functions of a job as well as information concerning reporting relationships and working conditions.

Students working as a paid intern, as part of a practicum or temporary/seasonal worker will be paid the minimum hourly wage under the pay band which their duties will fall.
