Employee Self-Service Guides

The following guides, along with the Time & Leave Reporting web page, have been created to provide employees with information regarding the features of the Employee Dashboard, details on reviewing current leave balances, and assistance with submitting and approving timesheets and leave reports.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, defines overtime and overtime compensation, identifies compensable hours of work, recordkeeping, and more.

Human Resources is the university's official source for information on what constitutes hours of work and how it pertains to non-exempt University Work Force and OPS Staff employees. For non-exempt University Work Force employees, when the total hours physically worked exceeds 40 in a workweek, defined as Sunday through Saturday at UWF, those employees are eligible for compensation in the form of overtime pay or compensatory time. OPS Staff employees are not eligible for compensatory time, but are eligible for overtime pay when their actual work hours exceed 40 in a workweek. At times, there are misunderstandings about what the FLSA does or does not require. 

Employees and Supervisors should review the information regarding what is defined as Compensable Hours of Work under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to ensure compliance when completing and approving timesheets. If you have additional questions, or need clarification, please reach out to Human Resources at 850.474.2694.
