WHEREAS, the services rendered to the public by personnel in the employ of the Commonwealth who are obliged to work beyond the regularly scheduled work-week should be recognized, and

WHEREAS, it is consonant with sound labor-management practice to compensate employees of the Commonwealth for time worked in excess of the normal work-week, and

WHEREAS, current personnel practice, both public and private, dictates the need for equal treatment under similar conditions for all state employees:

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Foster Furcolo, Governor of the Commonwealth do hereby promulgate this order as a measure expedient and necessary to the public welfare:

The director of personnel and standardization shall make, subject to the provisions of General Laws, chapter 7, section 28 the following rules concerning overtime compensation, provided that an appropriation be made by the General Court of funds to defray the cost thereof.

"Effective June 26, 1960 all employees subject to Section 45 and 46 of Chapter 30 of the General Laws, as amended, with the exception of those employees excepted under Rule G5 of the Rules and Regulations of the Division of Personnel and Standardization as authorized by Section 28 of Chapter 7 of the General Laws shall receive compensation at regular rate up to and including service of 40 hours per week. All service in excess of 40 hours per week shall be compensated at one and one-half time the regular rate."

"Curtailment of the hours of service scheduled in one tour of duty to off-set excess hours of service performed in another tour of duty is prohibited. Service for overtime purposes shall include all compensated time except the additional holiday compensation provided in Section 24A of Chapter 30 of the General Laws, as amended."

GIVEN at the Executive Chamber in Boston, this fifth day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and sixty, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and eighty-fourth.


By His Excellency the Governor


Secretary of the Commonwealth
