Commissioner Reiners stated that at the last commissioners meeting, it was
stated that the commissioners did not want Scott Melling to work any more over
time. This was due to Melling turning in approx. 1600 to 1700 hours and
considering himself a salaried employee. Ripley county considers Melling an
exempt salaried employee, not a salaried employee. Executive employees whom we
consider Melling are paid on a salaried basis of at least $250 per week and
have as their primary duties the management of the business or department of
the business, customary & regularly the supervision of direct work of at
least two other employees. Administrative employees are paid on a salaried
basis of at least $250 a week, have as their primary duty the performance of
the office or non manual work directly related to the management policies or
general business operations. Customary
& regularly perform work involving exercised discretion &
independent judgement. Ripley
County & Margaret Mary Hospital share Mellingís salary. Reiners stated
that he had talked to Nancy Martique, Director, Margaret Mary Hospital and it
is under the hospitalís opinion that Melling is an exempt salaried employee.
The same status that Ripley
County considers him and that exempt salaried employees are not eligible for
over time pay. Reiners motioned that it is the wish of this body we tell
Melling that he is to work as many hours as needed to perform his duties as
director, seconded by Commissioner Folz. Motion approved unanimously.
