For years, business groups have unsuccessfully lobbied Congress to give employers the option to substitute compensatory time off for overtime pay—an option currently allowed for public employers. Now, some state legislatures are taking up the cause.

Advocates call it a family-friendly initiative while opponents say it leaves employees open to retaliation if they say no to comp time offers. Similar proposals are floating in other states, and again on Capitol Hill.
