Over 40 Comp Time II Pilot Program
To: CSEA and PEF Represented Employees West Campus and HSC Employees
From: State Time and Attendance
Date: April 22, 2015
The Over40 Comp Time II Pilot Program (Over40 II) has been renewed for the 2015-16 year. Under this program, overtime-eligible state employees represented by CSEA may opt to earn compensatory time at the time and one-half rate in lieu of overtime pay for hours worked in excess of 40 in a workweek. Over40 II credits have no expiration date and cannot be charged as a leave accrual; however, up to 120 hours of accrued Over40 II credits may be cashed out once a year during the annual cash out period in December 2015. The 2014-2015 program year will conclude on June 17, 2015 close of business.
The Over40 II for PEF-represented employees expires on July 1, 2015; therefore, these employees are not eligible to enroll for the 2015-2016 program year. Accordingly, these employees will have a final opportunity to cash out up to 120 hours of Over40 II credits in December 2015.
Employees who enroll in the 2015-2016 program year will be eligible to receive Over40 II credits for overtime worked beyond 40 hours in a workweek for 26 pay periods beginning June 18, 2015. Employees must complete an Over40 Comp Time II Pilot Program Enrollment Form, and submit it to Human Resource Services no later than May 15, 2015.
The determination of whether overtime is required remains a management prerogative, subject to the agency's operational and program needs. Over40 II does not create any new obligation to offer overtime to employees.
