Compensatory Time Off

In accordance with the Fair Labor Standards Act, West Virginia University (WVU) may grant non-exempt employees compensatory time off (CTO) in lieu of compensation for certain hours worked with prior supervisory approval. Supervisors are not required to offer CTO in lieu of monetary compensation; nor may a supervisor force an employee to take CTO in lieu of monetary compensation. Compensatory time may be earned only when the employee has worked 40 or more hours in the established workweek. All hours from 0+ to 40 are to be paid at the employee’s hourly rate, with no option for time off in lieu of monetary compensation. Only those employees in full-time regular and part-time regular positions are eligible for CTO.
