Nonexempt Guidelines

Nonexempt Position Definition:Nonexempt positions are those that, because of the type of duties performed, the usual level of decision-making authority, and the method of compensation, are subject to coverage under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Full time Nonexempt employees are normally required to work 40 hours a week and they must record and account for all hours and fractional hours worked.  Nonexempt staff must be paid for all hours worked.  Any hours that are worked in excess of 40 hours in a work week must be paid at a rate of time and one-half the regular hourly rate of pay.

Nonexempt Pay Scale:  The pay scale for Nonexempt positions is developed and maintained by the University System of Maryland (USM).  It is a market based structure with 16 grades. The midpoint of each grade is targeted to market averages of benchmark positions. The scale is reviewed biennially and market adjustments are made, as needed.
