Purpose and Request:

title

Request by Budget Management for approval to extend authorization allowing employees the option to be paid for all hours worked directly related to the response and recovery of COVID-19 for the period of June 19, 2021 through July 2, 2021.

end

 

Background and Discussion:

Since many Harris County employees who are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic can only take minimal time off, this policy allows employees the option to be paid for all hours worked instead of accumulating excessive compensatory time.

 

Fiscal Impact:

The current cost of County employees working over 40 hours per week in the response and recovery to COVID-19 is approximately $317,000 per pay period for all funds.  This estimated cost includes both hours paid and compensatory time earned in excess of 40 hours per week.  It should be noted that Harris County is seeking 75%-100% reimbursement of these costs through FEMA’s Public Assistance Program.  The cost below represents one pay period covered under this request.
