An employee shall not be required or allowed to work overtime in the same work week as furlough leave unless pre-approval has been granted by the Division Administrator, Human Resource Management and the Director of the Department of Administration. In order to avoid accumulating overtime, an employee with a variable work week agreement may flex his hours by reducing the furlough leave hours taken and recording the additional work hours.
For example: a full-time employee normally works Monday through Friday. On Monday, he takes off 8 hours as furlough leave. In that same work week, the employee is notified in advance that he will need to work 6 hours on Saturday. Two hours of furlough leave would be recorded on Monday and 6 hours of straight time would be recorded on Saturday. The timesheet comments would reflect the change in the hours worked.
