Utilization of comp time off shall be by mutual agreement between the employee and the department head. The smallest increment of compensatory time which may be taken off is six minutes.
Compensatory time off which accrues in excess of eighty (80) hours must be liquidated by monetary payment. All monetary payments for overtime must be paid no later than the next biweekly payroll following the pay period in which the overtime was worked.
Effective the first full pay period following the Board of Supervisor’s adoption of a successor MOU, the maximum compensatory time off accrual shall be increased from the current amount of eighty (80) hours to ninety-six (96) hours. This provision shall be in effect for six (6) months. At the end of the six-month period, the Department will compare overtime usage for this past six-month period with the same six month period in the prior year. The overtime usage to be compared will be only that used to backfill for members who are absent from work due to the use of accrued comp time off. If the comparison shows a minimum of 15% increase in overtime usage for the specific reason noted above, the comp time accrual limit will revert to eighty (80) hours. If the result is less than a 15% increase, ninety-six hours will become the new cap for CTO accrual.
