    •No worker can be intimidated, coerced, or forced to accept comp time instead of cash wages. Employers who coerce employees into choosing comp time would be liable to the employees for double damages.

    •All existing enforcement remedies – including action by the U.S. Department of Labor – are available to workers if an employer fails to pay cash wages for overtime hours or unreasonably refuses to allow workers to use accrued comp time.

    If your employer is that much of a scum - it give you more protection than you currently have.

    The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government. - Thomas Jefferson
