Overtime over 40 vs over 8 hours


Federal pay policy indicates that overtime is paid when more than 40 hours of approved overtime work is performed in one week, or 8 hours in one day. Which is it and who decides this?

According to 5 CFR 551, https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/5/551.501 work in excess of 8 hours per day or 40 hours per week will be overtime. There are exceptions, for example, if on an approved compressed work schedule, it would not apply, and there are positions which are Exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and other positions which are Non-Exempt. And then there are positions which mandate overtime and these employees are given LEAP or AUO. These are some of the examples that will determine if an individual will be paid overtime or given compensatory time off or neither.
