Government Contracting and Uncompensated Overtime - Redstone GCI

A White paper by Wayne Murdock, CPA

Although hourly employees are protected under FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act), salaried employees do not enjoy the same protection. With the 2015 revision of FAR 52.237-10, all uncompensated overtime must be accounted for. DCAA and auditors are most concerned about this overtime as a requirement for an adequate accounting system. Although the CAM (Contract Audit Manual) offers plenty of guidance, it is up to contractors to fully understand and implement the accepted methods to prevent DCAA rejection.
