BA370 Wk6 Discussion Post 1. Should private sector employers be allowed to use comp time to meet their overtime pay obligations? What are the potential benefits? Problems ? As we read in chapter 12, “paying for overtime work with comp time off rather than overtime pay- depends on whether the employer is in the private or public sector”. (P392) According to Federal regulations, “private sector employers cannot pay for overtime required by the FLSA with comp time off in the future”. (P392) Due to the separate set of pay laws between private and public sectors, I do not think that private sector employers should be burdened with an extra set of legalities to conquer. Private sectors are monitored and typically run by individuals as opposed to a group of people to help ensure all laws are being followed, thus leaving more room for potential error in employment law.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
