    Frequently Asked Questions::Can a manager substitute time-off awards for compensatory time?

    Can a manager substitute time-off awards for compensatory time?

    No. The circumstances appropriate for the use of compensatory time are not generally appropriate for a time-off award. Compensatory time is authorized in exchange for hours worked in excess of the employee's regular work schedule. Awarding time off instead of compensatory time violates the incentive awards concept of recognizing exceptional performance, as opposed to compensating for extended work schedules.
