authorized including hours to be worked and an explanation
of the reason for the overtime. Employees working
unauthorized hours may be subject to disciplinary action.
Overtime/Straight Time Request
& Approval Process
• All non-exempt employees must have prior written
approval when working overtime and/or straight
time hours.
– Supervisors must submit the request for OT/ST hours using
the “Request for Overtime” form (BO-7721) in the month
prior to it being worked.
– Employees are not required to work all the hours stated on
Form BO-7721. The hours are only an estimate.
• BO-7721 must be completed regardless of the
number of overtime hours anticipated to be worked.

Weekly Hours Detail Report
Example
Weekly Hours Detail Report
• Click on Display Report. The report will look like the illustration below.
• This report is used to calculate straight time pay hours. We will be
analyzing the regular hours column in order to get the straight time
accrued by an employee. If an employee has more than 40 regular hours,
the excess of 40 is considered straight time.
Weekly Hours Detail Report
•
If an employee has over 40 regular hours in a week but the report shows “Leave
Without Pay (LWP)” in that same week, do not record the straight time hours up to
the amount of “Leave Without Pay”. If straight time hours exceed the number LWP,
then include the difference in the sum of straight time for the month. See example.
No

Time
Pay
Note:
• Split weeks must be analyzed before getting the straight time hours from the
Weekly Hour Detail. You may need to subtract straight time hours from a specific
week.
• Add the total straight time hours for all weeks the employee exceeded 40 hours for
each employee to the OT hours to calculate the total OT hours.
