When determining whether to APPROVE or REJECT a request to earn compensatory time, consider the following factors:
Why is the compensatory time being requested?
What would be the consequence of the compensatory time not being approved?
Do the notes (yellow sticky note image link on the timesheet) agree with the hours requested and information entered in the Additional Description: field?
Will you be violating any policies by approving or rejecting the compensatory time?
A request for accrued compensatory time off given with at least two weeks notice cannot be unreasonably denied.
Typically, compensatory time must be used before annual leave.
Technical (step-by-step) guide for both approving/rejecting requests to earn or use: See the NEATS Timekeeping procedure (01.30.10) and NEATS tutorials. The steps for approving/rejecting use and earning of overtime will also apply to compensatory time.
See your agency's policies, procedures or regulations for any agency specific processes (e.g., required hard copy form).
