Trying to get some insight into how other departments are dealing with the use of compensatory time.

According to FSLA, an agreement must be in place. It also talks about how the employee requests to take the time off, with the employers approval.

In our situation, the employer is telling employees to go home. In one situation, the employee was the only one in that division and later had to return to work.

Understand there was some court decision that said an agreement was not needed and the employer could force the employee to take the time off when they chose...Anyone got more info?
