If you are classified as non-exempt, you will be paid overtime at one and onehalf times your normal rate for all hours you work over the normal 40 hours in a workweek, or in excess of the approved standard for police and certain hospital employees. Departments that have approval may give employees compensatory time off in lieu of immediate overtime pay, at a rate of one and one-half hours for each overtime hour worked. (HR 211, 215)
