Human Resources Newsletter

March 7, 2008

Topics included in this issue:

Daylight Saving Time

Daylight saving time affects only those employees who are at work when daylight saving time goes into effect on Sunday, March 9, at 2:00 a.m. These employees will work one less hour because clocks will be adjusted ahead one hour.

The salary for EXEMPT employees will NOT be affected by daylight saving time. NONEXEMPT employees who are at work when daylight saving time goes into affect will NOT have a reduction in pay for this "lost" hour. The "lost" hour will be reported using the DST (Daylight Saving Time) earnings code. This hour will not count toward overtime (FLSA); however, it will count toward leave accrual.

Employees who record 1.0 hour using DST, will normally record 39 hours as REG (Regular Hours) for the work week. If the employee works extra hours during the week, one of those hours will be added/recorded as REG (Regular Hours) before overtime or comp time earned will be recorded.

Please contact Alma Deutsch at (785) 532-1448 or Kristi Fronce at (785) 532-1889, for further explanation.
