Q. If an employee injures himself on second shift and has to go to the doctor the next day prior to reporting to work, is he entitled to earn compensatory time for time spent seeking medical attention? Keep in mind he is a dual-status employee and therefore not entitled to overtime pay.
A. Absolutely not. Go to www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/pay-leave/pay-administration/fact-sheets/compensatory-time-off to learn how you can earn and use compensatory time.
