HOUSE BILL RE-INTRODUCED TO PERMIT COMP TIME

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) has re-introduced a bill (“Family-Friendly Workplace Act,” H.R. 933) that would give private sector employees the option of taking paid time off as compensation for overtime hours worked, or “comp time.” The bill would amend the Fair Labor Standards Act to allow employers to offer employees comp time off at a rate of one and one-half hours for each hour of overtime worked. Text of the proposed bill is here.
