State Personnel Director Official Communication 14-08
|July 28, 2014
|TO:||ALL APPOINTING AUTHORITIES, HUMAN RESOURCES OFFICERS, AND RECOGNIZED EMPLOYEE ORGANIZATIONS
|FROM:||JANET MCCLELLAND, ACTING STATE PERSONNEL DIRECTOR
|SUBJECT:||DRAFT AMENDMENTS TO CIVIL SERVICE REGULATION 5.02,, PREMIUM PAYMENT OF OVERTIME, ON-CALL COMPENSATION, AND CALLBACK COMPENSATION, AND 5.07, PERFORMANCE PAY PROGRAMS
|Staff proposes modifying Regulation 5.02, Premium Payment of Overtime, On-Call Compensation, and Callback Compensation to better match language from the Fair Labor Standards Act and its regulations on treatment of overtime for eligible employees. Regulation 5.02 currently attempts to restate some discretionary exceptions allowed under federal law. The proposed changes would refer to federally authorized exceptions rather than attempting to restate them.
Staff also proposes modifying Regulation 5.07, Performance Pay Programs to allow additional flexibility in the timing to request approval to pay performance-pay awards.
Written comments on the proposed amendments may be sent to Matthew Fedorchuk, Deputy Director, Civil Service Commission, P.O. Box 30002, Lansing, Michigan, 48909. Comments must be received by August 11, 2014.
