Helping employees maximize their potential


Compensatory Time Off

CTO agreements allow certain non-exempt employees to voluntarily select overtime compensation in the form of time off in lieu of compensation.  CTO eligibility is dependent upon bargaining unit agreement and the discretion of management.  CTO agreement forms are used to indicate a non-exempt employee’s selection of overtime compensation in the form of pay or compensatory time off.

CX – Clerical and Allied Services Optional PA – Police Required
EX – Patient Technical Care No CTO

These agreement forms are used to indicate whether overtime will be compensated in the form of pay or compensatory time off for non-exempt employees. An overtime compensation agreement form should be signed and dated by each non-exempt non-represented staff employee and Police Officer Unit employee before the performance of any overtime work. Departments should provide agreement forms to newly hired non-exempt employees in these units, and to those current employees whose status changes to non-exempt upon transfer, reclassification, or promotion. Completed forms should be retained in the employee's department personnel file.

Overtime agreement forms for non-exempt employees in the Registered Nurse, Skilled Crafts, Research Support Professionals, Clerical and Allied Services, Health Care Professionals, and Technical units are optional. If agreement forms for these employees are not completed, the method of compensation is as indicated in their respective bargaining agreements.

Please note that there is no overtime compensation agreement form for employees in the Patient Care Technical unit; the method of overtime compensation for these employees is in accordance with their respective bargaining unit contract.
