      I agree with you that the employee should have the right to choose comp time or overtime. However, I think that is based on the assumption that the employer will allow the employee to actually use the comp time when they want to. If the employer reneges on actually letting employees use comp time, it's basically free labor for the company at the expense of the employee. Quelle Surprise.
