Exempt and Non-exempt Employee Definition:
Exempt employees are employees who, because of their positional duties and responsibilities and level of decision-making authority, are exempt from the Work Timings, Overtime, and Attendance policy rules and regulations. The Company expects exempt employees, to work whatever hours are necessary to accomplish the goals and deliverables of their exempt position. Also Exempt employees are not entitled for overtime pay.
Non-exempt employees are employees who, because of the type of duties performed, the usual level of decision making authority, and the method of compensation, are expected to follow all rules and regulations related to Work Timings, Overtime, and Attendance policy of the Company.
Status of Employee:
There are three types of status that can be count, which are Full-time, Part-time, Temporary Status. Part-time or full-time status depends on the number of hours per week an employee works. Regular employees who work fewer than 5 hours receive part-time classification. Part-time employees [are/are not] eligible for employee benefits as described in this handbook. Regular employees who work at least 9 hours receive full-time classification.
From time to time the company may hire employees for specific projects or periods of time. Temporary employees may work either part-time or full-time, but generally are scheduled to terminate by a certain date. Temporary employees who remain on duty past the scheduled termination remain classified as temporary. Only may change an employee’s temporary status. Temporary employees are not eligible for employment benefits.
Working Hours and Overtime:
Working Hours – 9 Hours (9am to 6pm)
Hours may vary depending on work location and job responsibilities. Supervisors will provide employees with their work schedule. Employees who need to leave early, for illness or otherwise, should inform a supervisor before departure. Unauthorized departures may result in disciplinary action.
One hour before and after working hours (from 9am to 7pm) will not be counted in overtime.
Attendance Expectations and Policy:
The company expects at least 90% attendance of all the working days on monthly and yearly basis. The Company follows a no-fault attendance system. The company does not tolerate absenteeism without excuse. Employees who will be late to or absent from work should notify a supervisor in advance, or as soon as practicable in the event of an emergency.
Employees are expected to arrive on time and ready for work. An employee who arrives after their scheduled arrival time i.e., 9.15 am is considered tardy. The company recognizes that situations arise which hinder punctuality; regardless, excessive tardiness is prohibited, and may be subject to disciplinary action.
In a no-fault attendance system, absences are recorded thus:
• Each absence = 2 Point • Each late in or early out = 1 Point • Each employee starts fresh, with no points, each year.
Progressive disciplinary action accompanies a no-fault attendance system. If an employee earns:
• 6 Black Points = verbal warning • 8 Black Points = written warning • 9 Black Points = 2nd written warning • 10 Black Points = TERMINATION (If an employee found unable to give any satisfactory justification)
