Since compensatory time may not be advanced to employees, staff members will need to earn the necessary comp time for the energy conservation days prior to those days. Supervisors must provide ample opportunity for those employees observing energy conservation days to earn the comp time in advance. If comp time is not available, an employee must use available vacation or take leave without pay. Further guidance is outlined in UPPS 04.04.16 Overtime and Compensatory Time Policy, Section 5.03.
