Submitting Your Timesheet
The assigned hours an enrollee is authorized to work every pay period are considered authorized hours. These hours determine the amount of holiday pay for which an enrollee is eligible. Authorized hours are entered into the NOWCC SEE Program payroll program which automatically calculates paid holiday hours.
When an enrollee's authorized hours change for a sustained period, the Monitor must inform the NOWCC Field Office in writing.
NOWCC follows federal wage and hour law or state law, whichever is more generous. Typically, overtime is defined as time WORKED over 40 hours in a single week. Overtime calculations will not include holiday, sick leave, vacation leave or any other non-work hours.
Overtime is rarely required. If your assignment requires more than forty (40) hours of work per week, you and your Monitor must have advance approval from your EPA SEE Coordinator. This written approval must be sent to the payroll department before payment will be released. Authorized overtime will be paid at time and a half. Contact your NOWCC Field Office for further information.
You may not volunteer to work extra hours without pay.
You may not take compensatory time off in lieu of overtime payment. Compensatory time is defined as taking time off instead of getting paid for hours worked. This is not allowed.
You may, with your Monitor's prior permission, rearrange your authorized hours on a temporary basis. For example, you might work four (4) days at ten (10) hours each instead of five (5) days at eight (8) hours each. Another example would be if you normally work on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, but need to change to Wednesday, Thursday and Friday one week.
NOTE: Some states (i.e. California) place restrictions on working more than 8 hours per day. Please contact your NOWCC Field Office before discussing with your Monitor an increase in your work schedule beyond eight hours per day.
