APS will close its administrative offices for winter break from Wednesday, Dec. 24, through Friday, Jan. 2, reopening on Monday, Jan. 5.

Employees have the following options: 

  1. Non-exempt employees may charge between one and five days to compensatory time, depending upon the work needs and approved by the location supervisor. Compensatory time will be worked at the time-and-a-half rate. For example, eight hours of leave requires 5.33 additional hours of time worked.

Exempt employees may, at the discretion of their supervisors, earn compensatory time at a rate of one hour for each hour worked over the 40 hour work week. Compensatory time must be worked prior to Dec. 5, 2014, and mutually scheduled by the supervisor and the employee at a time most advantageous to the department.
  3. All records for compensatory time should be kept at the site by the supervisor.
