    Ohio Senator Beagle (R – Tipp City) has introduced S.B. 62 to permit employees to choose compensatory time off instead of overtime pay. This would be a great option for many employers, and many employees, who would prefer to trade time instead of cash. This bill is the companion to H.B. 61, introduced by Ohio Representatives Thompson (R – Marietta) and Martin (R – Greene Cty).

    If you approve of this measure, I highly recommend writing a letter of support to your Ohio Senator. A written letter will have more impact than an e-mail, but any communication is better than none. Here is an example letter you may copy and edit for your use (Download: DOC | RTF).

    Re: In support of S.B. 62 – Compensatory Time.

    Dear Honorable Senator Bacon,

    I am writing in support of Senate Bill 62 to allow private employers and employees to choose compensatory time instead of overtime pay. This bill would provide my employees with a valuable option for how to manage their work-life balance. Perhaps more important than total income, is the overall welfare and family life of my employees, and the passage of this bill will give me an important tool to improve the emotional and physical well being of my staff.

    If appropriate, insert a personal story about how this bill would impact you.

    I urge you to support the passage of this bill.

    Thank you for your service to our community and your continued support for Ohio Businesses.
