  3. If the salary position minimum of the position for which you are applying is higher than your current position, it is a promotion.


Q: How do I determine if I (or one of my subordinates) am eligible for overtime pay?

A: UCF complies with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and applicable state laws in designating the status of employees who are eligible for overtime payments and in making overtime payments, as specified in federal and state laws and related regulations.  Overtime eligibility is determined by an employee’s classification, job title and job duties.  The USPS Pay Plan indicates the overtime eligibility status of each classification.  Please refer to UCF Policy 3-010 – Eligibility for Overtime Compensation for additional information.
