  • Comp time for exempt employees

    At the company I work for--in California-- there has been a practice of giving comp time to exempt employees. If a manager has to work on a Saturday, for example, after working Monday through Friday, they can take an extra day off at some future time without having to use vacation time. Some managers have saved up several comp days to use later. Now they're saying we can't do this anymore because exempt employees aren't eligible to comp days. Can someone explain this to me?

    Comp time for exempt employees is legal but not required. I can't explain your company's reasoning but if they do not want to provide comp time any longer they don't have to.
    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.
