I am a nonexempt employee who is teleworking. Can I work a flexible work schedule?

December 16, 2020

Whether exempt or nonexempt, teleworking employees should be permitted to work a flexible work schedule unless it is operationally important that the employee work defined hours. To have a flexible work schedule, a nonexempt employee must acknowledge

1) shift differentials are not available for mandatory telework, and;

2) overtime is not authorized and must be approved by an employee's direct supervisor.
