a. Any employee who reports off duty sick from any regular assigned shift shall be considered "off duty" for a period of twenty-four (24) hours, commencing from the time that his/her regular tour of duty started for the next twenty-four (24) hours. During this twenty-four (24) hour period, an employee shall not be entitled to work any overtime, extra duty, or private duty assignments. If an employee is sick for more than one (1) day, this rule shall continue until he/she calls in or reports back to work on his/her regular duty assignments.

Overtime employees will retain their seniority rights in assignments to cars or beats when there are not enough men/women on the regular shifts to fill the cars or walking beats. Seniority will prevail for those employees working overtime when it becomes a question of assignments.
Where gender, language proficiency and/or ethnicity is/are a bona fide occupational qualification(s) for a particular assignment, it shall not be necessary to use the regular overtime hiring procedure to select the officers.
Call-in for overtime to attend departmental meetings or supervisory staff meetings shall be paid at the rate of time and one-half for the actual time it takes an employee to leave home, travel and attend the meeting at the police department and return home, with a minimum of two (2) hours' pay.
