C. Contract employees may accrue compensatory time at the rate of one hour for each hour worked in excess of eight hours in a work day or 40 hours in a work-week only if the Chief Executive Officer makes an advance determination that accrual of such compensatory time is in the interest of LBJ American Samoa Medical Center Authority.
