designed to dissuade or prevent employers from forcing their employees to work excessively long hours. These laws may take into account other considerations than the humanitarian, such as increasing the overall level of employment in the economy. One common approach to regulating overtime is to require employers to pay workers at a higher hourly rate for overtime work. Companies may choose to pay workers higher overtime pay even if not obliged to do so by law, particularly if they believe that they face a backward bending supply curve of labour . Overtime pay rates can cause workers to work longer hours than they would at a flat ...

Fewer employees, bigger payroll | Cincinnati Enquirer
Total gross payroll for 2009 was $334 million - about 4.5 percent higher than the $330.4 million paid out in 2008, according to city payroll data. The biggest chunk: $13.1 million more in base pay. That's thanks mostly to raises promised in union contracts. Each of the five unions that represent 91 percent of the city's workforce had previously negotiated cost-of-living adjustments for the year. The AFSCME, fire and Cincinnati Organized and Dedicated Employees unions, each got 3 percent, with police getting 2 percent. The raises came despite the fact the city faced a $51 million deficit for 2010 - and at the same time ... market research, surveys and trends

Troubling trends fuel high cost of cops' overtime ...
Look for the highest-paid Rochester city employee last year and the search won't lead to the mayor, the police chief or other department heads. The highest paid city worker was a police officer. The second-highest paid? A police officer. So was the third. Each was paid more than $125,000, their base salaries bolstered by overtime pay. None was fighting crime on Rochester's streets. Instead, the highest paid was a front-desk sergeant at headquarters paid $135,958 before taxes � including $56,991 in overtime pay. Next on the list was a lieutenant who oversaw special events such as parades and festivals. He was followed ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Police try to adjust to difficult economy
Some departments, including Mount Laurel's and Evesham's, are also coming off cost-cutting contract settlements with their municipal leaders, under a hiring freeze and operating with close to minimal manpower.

Mount Laurel's new police contract includes $2 million in concessions that helped prevent 15 police layoffs. One contract concession was the elimination of police overtime through the end of the year, leaving officers instead to take compensatory time, officials ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Overtime pay versus comp time | Ask MetaFilter
Yesterday afternoon, my employer told all employees that there would be no more overtime pay, only comp time. Neither I nor anyone else on my team is salaried. I live in Arizona and as far as I can tell, Arizona does not have an overtime law , so we should be covered under federal law. But I can't find any explanations of overtime pay versus comp time here. So, my questions are pretty simple: 1) Is it legal to give employees comp time in lieu of overtime? 2) Would that comp time be accrued like overtime pay, that is, one and a half hours for every hour worked over 40? 3) If it is not legal, what are the specific laws and ...
Labor Law in Illinois: Compensatory Time Off in Lieu of Overtime ...
I've been doing a little online research, but it's still a bit fuzzy. If an employer will not pay overtime to non-exempt, non-government employees (time and a half over 40 hours worked in a week), but offers compensatory time instead, shouldn't that time be given at time and a half, as well? What about so-called "non-profit" employers, like churches? Is "comp" time even legal? Per Section 7 of the Fair Labor Standards Act and Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 553, the only employers who can pay compensatory time off in lieu of overtime wages are state and local government entities.
