Different managers in our company handle comp time differently, which creates some issues. Some track it and then allow employees to schedule it as in advance. Others give it out whenever it is asked for, but the problem is this: we usually accrue comp time in a crisis. A system goes down and we work late. There are still issues the next day, and some of us with managers that require scheduling in advance are left to pick up the pieces, while those who can simply ask and get it are at home sleeping.
Is there a better way to handle this on a company-wide level? What are the recommended ways to handle comp time?
Comp time definition: From en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overtime : Time off in lieu; compensatory time; or comp time refers to a type of work schedule arrangement that allows (or requires) workers to take time off instead of, or in addition to, receiving overtime pay. A worker may receive overtime pay plus equal time off for each hour worked on certain agreed days, such as bank holidays.
