Full time plus additional work?

I run a nonprofit organization. I have an employee who works FT in one program on salary. He wants to work in another of our programs several hours in the evening, seeing therapy clients (he is a Master's level psychologist) for which we typically pay by the hour. Can I do this without paying overtime, or increasing other benefits (such as his pension contribution).

If you mean an overtime premium, rather than the regular hourly rate, it depends on whether the employee is an exempt employee for purposes of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
The obligation to contribute to the pension plan depends on the plan documents and contract with the employee. I need to review the plan documents and details to determine whether the employee may be an exempt professional. Please call me for an appointment. I do charge a consultation fee.
