HUMAN RESOURCES POLICY AND PRACTICES MANUAL


9.1 COMPENSATORY TIME


Compensatory Time (commonly referred to as "Comp Time") may be defined as paid time off which is earned and accrued in lieu of cash payment when overtime compensation is required. Except for non-bargaining unit (Confidential) employees, the accrual and use of Comp Time is governed by the applicable collective bargaining agreement.

When considering Comp Time, employees and supervisors should take into account the appropriate accrual rate (straight time or overtime); the maximum number of Comp Time hours that may be accrued, and when accrued Comp Time may be used. It is important to note that these factors are not the same for all employees or all circumstances.

The Comp Time chart that follows is intended to be a summary and, as such, does not include certain employment situations or special agreements. Agency human resource representatives should be consulted when questions arise regarding the accrual or use of Comp Time. The following factors should also be considered with respect to the accrual of Comp Time.
