An “employee” of Launch Expeditionary Learning Charter School is a person who regularly works for Launch on a wage or salary basis. “Employees” may include exempt, non-exempt, regular full- time, regular part-time and temporary persons and others employed with the school that are subject to the control and direction of Launch in the performance of their duties.
|Exempt||Employees whose positions meet specific criteria established by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and who are exempt from overtime pay requirements. Exempt employees are expected to work as many hours as needed to complete their job duties.|
|Non Exempt||Employees whose positions do not meet FLSA criteria and who are paid one and one-half their regular rate of pay for hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week. See Overtime policy in the Wages and Payroll Section for definition of “hours worked.” Non-exempt employees are not to work before or to continue working after their scheduled hours unless specifically authorized for each occurrence by their supervisor. Non-exempt employees are not allowed to perform work while on scheduled non-paid lunch break, unless specifically assigned by the supervisor. Attendance at Launch sponsored functions is not compensated unless the supervisor has required you to attend in writing and has communicated with the Director of Finance.|
|Regular Full Time||Employees regularly scheduled to work 35 or more hours per week. Generally, they are eligible for Launch’s benefits package, subject to the terms, conditions, and limitations of each benefit program.|
|Regular Part Time||Employees regularly scheduled to work less than 35 hours per week. Generally, they may be eligible for Launch’s benefits package, subject to the terms, conditions, and limitations of each benefit program.|
|Temporary (Full Time or Part Time)||Individuals who are hired on an interim basis to assist in the completion of a specific project or for employee leave relief. They are not eligible for any of Launch’s benefit programs. Temporary employees retain that status until they are notified of a change, if necessary. If a temporary employee is hired into a regular full or part time position, their time as a temporary employee does not count towards benefits eligibility or seniority.|
