If this provides employer latitude from work rules the Govt really should never have subsumed to itself, then the employer and employee are winners, not to mention the taxpayers who would see less costs of regulation, enforcement and litigation.

Argument opposed

Magnifies the power imbalance between employer and employee. Hurts worker rights.

There's no place for government in this matter. This is a contract that must be agreed on by employers and employees.

This should be between employers/employees. Some workers are happy with comp time, some aren't. It should be their decision.

Instead of comp time change overtime from 1.5x to 1.75x to2x after 40 hours. It would make companies think twice about over working their employees and hire more workers and reduce unemployment.
