208 Compensatory Time
Managerial and professional staff are paid an annual salary for the performance of services regardless of the number of hours worked. They do not receive overtime pay.
Managers and supervisors may consider and approve compensatory time off when exceptional circumstances require additional time commitments on a scheduled and consistent basis. In these instances, additional days off may be granted in consideration of the amount and duration of the additional time commitments, and must be used within the fiscal year in which approved.
Compensatory time should not be authorized for additional time that is typical, expected, and frequently required for all managerial and professional jobs in order to meet responsibilities. It should not be authorized for occasional overtime work or for extended but clearly limited periods of additional work that are common to most departments. Nor should it be authorized if an employee chooses to work through lunch periods, to come in early or to leave late, either occasionally or consistently.
Formal compensatory time arrangements, whether pre-established or new, must be documented in writing and require the approval of the Manager of Compensation and Classification.
