  • comp time in lieu of overtime for non-exempt employee (FL)

    It is my understanding that under the FLSA non-exempt employees cannot receive comp time. I work in a private firm in Florida, so we are not state regulated because apparently government employees can receive comp time? My question is; can a non-exempt employee choose to take comp time instead of overtime he or she may have accrued. Thank you for your help.
    I just thought of this scenario though....we also have an office in North Carolina, I'd like to know if the rules are different for NC on this question!
