Supervisors shall make every effort to arrange the work schedules of their employees to accomplish the required work within the standard workday. Employees shall generally be required to work overtime only during emergencies, however, it is recognized that some overtime may be necessary on a recurring basis to efficiently satisfy the work requirements of the department. Overtime work shall be considered work performed by an employee at the direction of a department head or his authorized representative which exceeds the established workweek of the employee. Employees, other than department heads, who are required to work overtime shall be given compensatory time off at the discretion of the department head and in keeping with the work schedule of the department. Extended or recurring overtime requirements may be compensated for on a straight time or time and one-half basis where approved by the town manager.
