Types of 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)
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.
