Body

BACKGROUND

 

The Community Services Department has events throughout the year which fall on City observed holidays (i.e., Thanksgiving), requiring the assignment of part-time staff to work.  The City does not have a formal process on compensating part-time employees for actual hours worked on a City observed holiday.  

 

ISSUES/ANALYSIS

 

One of the City Manager’s initiatives is to provide better business practices.  One of which is compensating part-time employees at one-and-a-half times his/her current hourly rate of pay for actual hours worked on a City-observed holiday.  Currently, when the need for part-time staff to work holidays arises there is no formal process to compensate at the rate of time and a half.  This Administrative Policy will set parameters for selection and compensation and will formalize the process.     

 

The intent of having this policy is to provide the Department and City Manager the ability to manage special events and compensate part-time staff accordingly.  The policy outlines the process of signing up to work an event and the compensation for the hours worked. 

 

This policy does not affect any bargaining group. 

 

FISCAL IMPACTS

 

Funds for part-time staff were approved in the FY2018-19 budget in the Community Services General Fund Part-Time Salaries Accounts.  Adoption of this policy does not require additional financial resources.

 

ALTERNATIVES

 

1. Provide alternative direction to staff.
