leave and overtime for training
Hello, I am helping to develop a policy addressing leave usage and overtime for the attending of training classes and seminars. I am interested in how other departments handle this issue for training that requires travel (overnight) and local training that only requires local travel.
I am specifically interested in how departments handle leave and overtime for station based (24/48) personnel, although 40 hour week info is needed also. Any help, copies of existing policies, etc. will be extremely helpful.
When is overtime paid? How is the number of hours of overtime computed? Is overtime related to hours of instruction received? Are employees expected to 'payback' hours if instruction time is less than usual work time? Anything else?
Thanks in advance!
