Ohio Mulls Compensatory Time Off
In Ohio, Senate Bill 26 would give private sector employers the option to offer,
and employees the option to accrue, compensatory time off, at a rate of at least
1.5 times their normal compensation rate, instead of monetary pay for overtime.
Employees who agree to this arrangement must do so in a written statement that
the employer must keep on file. The bill also gives employers the option to
establish biweekly work schedule programs allowing employees to work 80 hours
in any 2 consecutive workweeks. Until now, the law required overtime compensation
only for work over 40 hours in one week. The new biweekly standard would give
employers more flexibility in their scheduling. The bill is currently before
the Senate Committee on Insurance, Commerce, and Labor.
