Types of Positions

Regular Exempt Positions

All regular exempt positions include a full benefits package. Professional, managerial and executive positions are classified as Exempt on the basis of the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Exempt employees are salaried and not eligible for overtime. All exempt positions require a minimum of a Bachelor's degree. Exempt positions are considered employment at will. (Examples: Coordinators, Directors, Technical Specialists)

Regular Non-Exempt Positions

All regular non-exempt positions include a full benefits package. Service, technical, administrative assistants, clerks, and paraprofessional positions are classified as non-exempt under FLSA and are subject to overtime if required to work beyond a 40 hour workweek. Non-exempt employees serve a mandatory probation period, and receive a salary adjustment upon successful completion of the probation.
