Overtime Pay Calculation

Overtime Pay (in accordance with the Fair Labor Standards Act) =

[(Reg Hrs x Hourly rate) + (OT Hrs x Hourly rate) + (Premium Pay) ] / [Reg Hrs + OT Hrs] = FLSA Rate

(OT Hrs x Hourly rate) + (OT Hrs x .5 x FLSA Rate) = OT Earnings

* Currently, the University of Kansas allows one overtime rates at one at time-and-a-half (1.5- OTP)

Overtime pay must be calculated separately for each standardized work period.

Non-exempt employees who are employed on multiple positions and whose total hours worked exceed the FLSA limit during the work period are eligible for overtime that must be recorded as Overtime-Multiple Positions (OTM). The agency/agencies involved will need to calculate the overtime and enter the flat amount and the associated hours on the time sheet.
