Reporting and Processing Compensatory Time

Purpose:  Use this document as a reference for reporting and processing compensatory time in ctcLink.

Audience: Time & Labor Administrators and Managers

  • Time can be reported on behalf of employees by the Managers and Time Admins
  • Time Reporting Codes (TRCs) – Compensatory Time Earned (CTE), Compensatory Time Taken (CMP), Compensatory Time Paid (CTP) & Compensatory Time Adjust (CTA) are the compensatory TRCs available for Time Admins for reporting via Manager Self Service.
  • Compensatory Time Adjust (CTA) is the TRC available for use to adjust the time. Either a positive or a negative time entry is allowed with the intention of allowing to adjust the compensatory time.
  • Managers have access to Compensatory Time Earned (CTE) & Compensatory Time Taken (CMP)

NOTE: The compensatory time earned is multiplied by 1.5 to result in total compensatory hours available. When 1 hour of CTE is entered 1.5 hours of compensatory time is earned and added to the leave compensatory time balance.
