    Yeah, it's been all over the internet, but I haven't really had time to review it carefully.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

    I think it is an interesting idea. However some of the language leads me to see a lot of arguments in workplaces. I could also see companies doing away with any vacation time in favor of letting employees use comp time instead.

    honestly, for the businesses I am in and the problems we already have with staffing (hourly, non-college-educated, non-fulltime positions, with no PTO, very blue collar), I honestly don't see where this will be beneficial to us as they generally need all their pay now. So based on what I am reading, we as the employer would be able to opt to just continue to pay OT as it currently, right? The recordkeeping alone would be a nightmare and in the end if you have to pay at the higher rate, pay out unused at specific intervals and at termination, I just don't see many benefits to the employer except deferring some liabilities and the taxes associated.

    Maybe could see it if I had more white collar hourly but we pretty much don't have but a couple. And they rarely get OT.

    The recordkeeping requirements were what caught my eye.

    Saw it but as I am in the public sector and already have Comp Time, I haven't paid close attention.
    I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.

    We're part of a municipality, but we've chosen to go the O/T route rather than do comp time. The primary City government does do the comp time and it's a nightmare. There are employees off nearly the entire month of December. Great for the employees ... rough to run a City on a skeleton crew. We would avoid comp time like the plague ...
