    The following agencies reported overtime paid during the 1997 flood disaster:

      Department of Water Resources

11. DEPARTMENT OF LAW ENFORCEMENT
    FOR YOUR INFORMATION: The Department of Law Enforcement has a Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) exemption for Executive, Administrative and Professional Personnel employees and all are coded as covered employees.
      Peggy Haar reported several years ago the Department of Law Enforcement requested a FLSA exemption from the Idaho Personnel Commission and it was approved. All the department’s employees are covered and receive time and a half for any overtime. She said the Wage and Hour law does not prohibit employees from being treated better than provided in existing statutes and regulations and this is the case here. She cannot find anything in the Idaho Code where this is allowed. Mike Brassey will discuss this with Bob Ford and the Department of Law Enforcement.
