COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR ORDINANCE NO. 960647

 

Amending Article VIII of the Administrative Code of Kansas City, Missouri relating to the Classification and Compensation Plan, by repealing Section 2-1088 and enacting in lieu thereof a new section of like number and subject matter which changes the manner in which exempt employees are compensated for certain overtime.

 

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That Article VIII of the Administrative Code of Kansas City, Missouri, is hereby amended by repealing Section 2-1088, relating to the Classification and Compensation Plan and enacting in lieu thereof the following section:

 

Sec. 2-1088. Overtime and compensatory time.

 

All overtime or arrangements for overtime work by city employees shall be approved in advance by the department head. Any employee assigned to perform overtime work in excess of the applicable standard workday or standard workweek will be compensated as follows:

 

(1) Employees allocated to classes that are covered under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) shall be paid for overtime work at the rate of time and one-half the straight

hourly equivalent rate for the assigned position classification. Hours worked in

excess of 16 in any day or on the seventh consecutive day of the employee's work

week will be compensated at twice the regularly assigned straight time hourly rate.

Employees allocated to classes within an exempt executive, administrative or

professional group or a noncovered group shall not be paid for overtime work, and

are not eligible to earn compensatory time.

 

a. Whenever an employee qualified for overtime is called back on an emergency

to work after the employee's regular working hours and after the employee

has left the employee's last work site, the minimum overtime payment or the

minimum compensatory time credit shall be for four hours of work at the rate

of time and one-half.

 

b. Employees may be granted equivalent compensatory time off in lieu of cash

compensation for overtime worked, subject to the following conditions:

 

1. Compensatory time may be earned and must be used during the fiscal

year. Maximum accumulation of compensatory time is 240 hours,

such accumulation being determined by multiplying the overtime

hours worked by the appropriate factor or combination of factors until

the 240 hour maximum is reached. The factor for time and one-half

is 1 ; that for double time is 2.

 

2. In that no cash payout of the accumulated compensatory time is

intended, all scheduled use of the accumulated time must be

completed by the end of the fiscal year. Employees may use

accumulated compensatory time within a reasonable period after

request if such use does not unduly disrupt the operations of the city.

While generally the choice of the use of accumulated compensatory

time will be mutually agreed upon by the employee and the

supervisor, in the event of a conflict, work schedule demands will

prevail.

 

(2) Employees exempt from the FLSA in salary grades M-30 and below may be granted a bonus of $250.00 for performing their duties under a declared emergency situation

or situations that the City Manager deems as immediately essential to the operation

of City government. This provision will apply only when hours worked are in excess

of 55 in a workweek and conditions do not allow the employee to take equivalent

time off. The manager requesting the utilization of this policy must provide a written

request documenting the necessity for the payment of the bonus to the exempt

employee. Such payment shall be at the recommendation of the department head and

will require the approval of the City Manager.

 

Employees exempt from the FLSA in salary grades M-31 to M-35 may be granted

a bonus of $400.00 for performing their duties under a declared emergency situation

or situations that the City Manager deems as immediately essential to the operation

of City government. This provision will apply only when hours worked are in excess

of 55 in a workweek and conditions do not allow the employee to take equivalent

time off. The manager requesting the utilization of this policy must provide a written

request documenting the necessity for the payment of the bonus to the exempt

employee. Such payment shall be at the recommendation of the department head and

will require the approval of the City Manager.

 

(3) Employees allocated to classes covered by the provisions of the work agreement between the city and Local 500--American Federation of State, County and

Municipal Employees shall be compensated in accordance with the provisions of the

work agreement in effect.

 

(4) Employees allocated to classes covered by the provisions of the work agreement between the city and Local 42--International Association of Fire Fighters shall be

compensated in accordance with the provisions of the work agreement in effect.
