The proposed legislation would also repeal flexible averaging agreements to accommodate changes to how banked overtime is compensated. Currently, employees can choose to be paid for overtime at time-and-a-half, or receive 1.5 banked time off. Instead, Bill 2 would allow employers and workers to make straight-time banked hour arrangements, where employees could still choose to bank overtime hours, but at a 1:1 ratio.
