entitled to overtime compensation. John
usually works until 7 p.m. The facility
may wish to adjust John's schedule
such that he doesn't need to begin work
until 10 a.m., thus limiting the number
of overtime hours he works.

You could adjust wages to account
for overtime. For example, you could
adjust earnings to reallocate it
between regular wages and overtime
so that the total amount paid to the
employee remains largely the same.

Example #4:
Assume a supervisor who satisfies
the duties test for the executive
exemption earns $37,000 per year
($711.54 per week). The supervisor
regularly works 45 hours per
week. The employer may choose
to instead pay the employee an
hourly rate of $15 and pay time and
one-half for the five overtime hours
worked each week.
In this example, the new adjustments
would work out like this:

The option you ultimately choose will
depend largely on the work habits of
your employees, your budget and the
flexibility of your team.
The Easiest Way to Manage
& Track Employee Hours
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act
(FLSA), employers must consistently
keep track of the hours that nonexempt employees work in order to
ensure they are being paid fairly (i.e.
above the minimum wage and for
overtime hours).
The FLSA does not specify the tools
or require certain methods that
employers must use to track employee
time - they simply require you to keep
accurate records. ■
