Title: Working Families Flexibility Act of 1996

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that gives employees the option to choose between one and one-half hours of compensatory time-off for each hour worked or overtime pay for extra hours worked.

  • Requires an employer and employee to reach an agreement before compensatory time can be offered.
  • Stipulates that an employee of a private agency cannot earn more than 240 hours of compensatory time.
  • Prohibits an employer from coercing employees into making a decision when choosing to accept compensatory time off or payment for overtime hours worked.
  • Requires an employer to pay for compensatory time not taken by the end of a 12-month period, or at the time of employee termination.
  • Requires employers to allow employees to use their earned compensatory time within a reasonable amount of time after the employee requests its use, unless it overly disrupts operations.
