Would Workers Prefer Comp Time in Lieu of OT?
Private sector employees would be able to opt for paid time off in lieu of cash wages for overtime hours worked, under a bill introduced by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.).

The Family-Friendly Workplace Act (H.R. 6025) would amend the Fair Labor Standards Act to allow employees who prefer to take compensatory time--instead of receiving overtime pay--to do so.

"Time is one of our most precious resources," said McMorris Rodgers. "We all want more of it and yet we only have 24 hours in a day. That means we have to figure out how to work a full day, run errands, pack lunches, make dinner and spend quality time with our kids, spouse, or elderly parent. Giving employees more flexibility in their workweek is key to increasing retention as well as attracting great employees that will help increase our country's competitiveness."

The bill was referred to the House's Committee on Education and Labor.
