Hiring an Employee for an Additional Job With the City
Due to the overtime compensation requirements imposed by the Fair Labor Standards Act, which covers employees having more than one job with the same agency, Department Directors are discouraged from hiring present City employees for additional jobs with the City.
If a situation arises in which a Department Director feels that a present City employee should be employed in a second position, the Department Director should first check with the City Manager, City Attorney and Human Resources Division to determine how the situation should be handled in order to comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act. If two departments are affected by the joint employment situation, they must also determine how compensation for the additional work will be handled, i.e., payment for overtime or the granting of comp-time. All situations of City employees having two jobs with the City must receive prior approval by the City Manager and the Human Resources Division.
