Encl. (1) to COMDTINST 12550.3C
12 JUN 1989
The total overtime compensation for service performed during the 24-hour period of a Sunday
or holiday shall not exceed 4 and 1/2 times the gross daily rate of pay.
Nonperformance of Requested Services. If services which have been requested, and for which
employee have reported are not performed by reason of circumstances beyond the control of the
employees concerned, extra compensation shall be paid and collected on the same basis as though the
services had actually been performed during the period between the time the employees were ordered
to report for duty and did so report and the time they were notified that their services would not be
required, and in any case as though actual performance had continued for at least 1 hour.
When overtime services at night or on a Sunday or holiday are rendered in broken periods and
less than 2 hours intervene between such broken periods, the intervening waiting time, including
any time required for travel between posts of overtime duty but not including any periods for
meals or other time not spent at the post of duty, shall be included in the computation of
overtime compensation as though the services had been continuous.
If 2 hours or more intervene between periods during which services are actually performed, the
district commander or his/her designee shall determine, according to the circumstances of the
case, whether the service shall be treated as continuous with compensable waiting time or as two
or more distinct assignments with compensation to be computed separately for each assignment
in accordance with the provisions of this instruction. In no case shall any employee be entitled to
receive more than 2 and 1/2 days pay by reason of the fact that he is given two or more
assignments during 1 night.
Part-Time Employees. The extra compensation for overtime services performed by a permanent part-
time employee at night (after 5:00 p.m.) or on a Sunday or holiday shall be computed on the basis of
the gross daily rate of regular pay the part-time employee would receive for full-time service in the
position held by him/her. Employees who are paid on a per diem-when-employed basis shall be paid
the overtime rate but not the per diem rate when assigned to perform overtime services on a Sunday or
Prorating Charges. If services are performed for two or more applicants during one continuous tour of
overtime duty, the charge for the extra compensation earned shall be prorated equitably according to
the time attributable to the services performed for each applicant.
