Compensatory time off is leave time in lieu of overtime payment at the calculation of one and one-half hours of each hour of overtime worked.
A supervisor has the option of offering to an eligible employee compensatory time off with pay, rather than overtime payment. All hours granted as time off with pay for hours worked in excess of forty hours per week or eight hours per day are to be considered as compensatory time off and scheduled as one and one-half hours for each overtime hour worked.
The employee decides whether they want to receive overtime pay or compensatory time off. An employee should make a request for compensatory time off in lieu of overtime pay before the performance of an overtime assignment. A supervisor cannot require that an employee take compensatory time off. Compensatory time off must be paid out to an employee if the employee leaves the department of the University.
