Comp Time for Private Employers – A Choice for Employees

Offering employees the choice between comp time in place of overtime is a benefit that the public sector has but the private sector does not. The benefit allows employees to choose between getting paid overtime for hours worked over 40 in a week or getting one and a half times the overtime hours added to the employee’s comp time balance.

The benefit is appealing to some employers and employees; some employers don’t want to pay overtime and some employees prefer time off to more money. There are groups that recognize this and are advocating to make this benefit widely available.

How to Track Comp Time With Timesheets

Some employees earn comp time as a reward for good work. Keeping track of it is easy with our online time clock. (If you’re unsure about when comp time can legally be used, read last week’s post about overtime violations.)

You can track comp time by customizing a time off label and naming it Comp Time. Since it is not a regular accruable, i.e. employees accrue hours randomly, you will have to manually enter your employee’s time on the employee’s options page as they earn hours.
