Year-round Employees Will Need to Take Leave or Comp Time for Winter Break

APS offices will be closed Dec. 23-Jan. 1 for winter break. Offices will open again on Jan. 2, 2014.

Year-round employees who are scheduled to work five days during winter break (Dec. 23, 26, 27, 30 and 31) must charge those days to either approved leave or compensatory time.

Employee Options

  • Non-exempt employees may charge between one and five days to comp time, depending upon the work needs and approved by the location supervisor. Comp time will be worked at a time-and-a-half rate. For example, eight hours of leave requires 5.33 hours of time worked.
  • Exempt employees may, at the discretion of their supervisors, earn comp time at a rate of one hour for each hour worked over the forty hour work week. Comp time must be worked prior to Dec. 13 and mutually scheduled by the supervisor and the employee.

All comp time must be pre-approved by your supervisor.

The start date for accumulating comp time was July 1, 2013. All records for compensatory time should be kept at the site by the supervisor.

  • All five days may be charged to annual leave or combination of annual and personal leave.
  • All five days or any portion thereof may be charged to leave without pay.
  • Employees will not be provided the opportunity to work at another site. The district will, however, attempt to accommodate any new employee who has not had sufficient time to accrue annual leave so that they will not encounter loss of pay. Supervisors may develop individual compensatory time plans in those particular cases.
