Each job opening listed online for the City of St. Helena has a classification specification associated with it.

These specifications delineate the basic responsibilities and the minimum skill and knowledge requirements of each of the following classifications:

  • Exempt Positions
  • Non-Exempt Positions
  • Part-Time Positions

Exempt Positions Classification Specifications

Exempt employees are defined as employees who, based on duties performed and manner of compensation, shall be exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) minimum wage and overtime provisions. Exempt employees shall be paid an established monthly or annual salary and are expected to fulfill the duties of their positions regardless of hours worked. Exempt employees are not eligible to receive overtime compensation or compensatory time off, and are not required to adhere to strict time, record keeping, and attendance rules for pay purposes.

Non-Exempt Positions Classification Specifications

Non-exempt employees are defined as employees who, based on duties performed and manner of compensation, shall be subject to all Fair Labor and Standards Act (FLSA) provisions. Non-exempt employees shall be required to account for time worked on an hourly and fractional-hourly basis and are to be compensated for qualified overtime hours at the premium (time-and-1-half) rate.

Part-Time Positions Classification Specifications

A part-time position typically requires less than 30 but more than 20 hours per week. This may apply to regular or temporary appointments.
