Full-time Employees are FLSA-exempt professional appointees. The workweek for full-time exempt appointees is normally at least forty (40) hours, with emphasis placed on meeting  the responsibilities assigned to their respective positions, on making progress toward their professional goals, and on demonstrating their research and creative capabilities, rather than working a specific number of hours. Required work schedules must be reasonable, and related to the research needs. Employees covered by this agreement do not receive overtime compensation or compensatory time off for working more than 40 hours in a workweek.
