Excluded USPS Employee Time Records
Bob Willits, Interim Director
As part of the campus-wide effort to eliminate paperwork and following a review of auditing requirements, the need to record time worked (“Excluded Employee’s Record” Form #CS-EER 400) by “excluded” USPS employees now is optional. “Excluded” employees are those who are not included under the Fair Labor Standards Act’s overtime provisions. Careful monitoring of time worked by these USPS staff members still is needed as two exceptions to this change exist.
Exceptions to this change involve workweeks where “excluded” USPS employees work more than 40 hours or those in which special compensatory leave is earned. In such instances, your department should have employees complete a time record (and appropriate supervisor sign it) to ensure any regular or special compensatory leave earned is correctly calculated and recorded. These records can also be used later if questions arise regarding leave accrual.
Procedures for “included” USPS employees who complete time cards remain unchanged. Should you have questions, please call Sandra Lovegrove, Central Leave Administration, (352) 392-5732, SC 622-5732, TDD 392-7734, or send e-mail to email@example.com.
