Background and Discussion:
Since the onset of the pandemic, Commissioners Court has authorized employees responding to COVID-19 to be paid for all hours worked instead of accumulating excessive compensatory time.

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

Alternative Options:
There is a financial impact of paying employees for all hours worked instead of them earning compensatory time. Commissioners Court could take no action and eliminate the financial impact, however, there would be employees earning excessive compensatory time and exempt employees would not accrue or be paid for hours over 240.


Alignment with Goal(s):
