Fiscal Detail and Notes
The bill excludes executive branch and judicial branch employees engaged in fire protection and law enforcement activities from state laws pertaining to payment of overtime only if they are eligible to have overtime pay calculated and paid in accordance with the standards set forth in federal law. It also allows parties to negotiate an agreement allowing them to receive overtime that exceeds the requirements of federal law. To the extent that a group of affected employees chooses not to negotiate such an agreement or are unable to, savings could be realized. An estimate of the potential savings cannot be determined at this time.
