Can hourly employees be permitted to take comp time instead of being paid overtime?

Only certain employees of municipal employers may be permitted to take time off in lieu of being paid overtime. However, employees who work unexpectedly long days early in the work week may be required to refrain from working later in the week, thereby avoiding a weekly overtime obligation.
