What are the rules about the number of overtime hours a supervisor may require employees to work?
No statutory or regulatory limits apply to the amount of overtime work a manager may require an employee to perform. However, an employee may be excused from overtime work for reasons such as illness or the illness of a family member. For information on computing overtime pay, see www.opm.gov/oca/pay/HTML/FACTOT.asp
If an employee refuses to perform overtime work, the agency may discipline the employee for failure to report for scheduled overtime duty.
