Seguin City Hall

As members of Seguin Electric Utilities ready their bootstraps for another hurricane response, city salaried employees will now receive overtime when providing aid to emergency relief efforts.

In August, five Seguin Electric Utilities department members, along with their superintendent Freddy King, provided relief post-Hurricane Laura to neighboring municipalities of San Augustine and Newton.

A salaried employee receives an annual salary which is calculated based upon the effort required of the employee throughout the period of his/her employment. Exempt employees receive the same salary whether actively on and off the job. It should be understood that the period of employment will include times requiring both extreme and comparatively little effort. In contrast to that, non-exempt employees are only compensated at the appropriate hourly or overtime rate when employed to actively perform the requirements of the job regardless of the level of the effort involved. Bonuses are a more appropriate method of compensating the exemplary effort of exempt employees.
