A state employee eligible for overtime may instead receive compensatory time off under an agreement with the employer, which provides that:
• At the end of a workweek, all overtime hours are credited as compensatory leave at the rate of 11/2 hours' credit for each hour of overtime worked.
• Employees are allowed to accumulate up to 80 hours of credit.
• Employees are allowed to use credits in any increments agreed on by the employer and employee. Absent a mutual agreement, a supervisor may require an employee, with 5 days' notice, to use the credits at any time in increments of full workdays.
• At the close of business on June 30 or December 31 annually, employees are paid for all unused credits at the employees' regular rate of pay.
• When a state employee is called back to work beyond the scheduled hours, the employee is credited with the actual time worked or 2 hours, whichever is greater (FL Admin. Code Sec. 60L-34.0031).
