Placement of the employee returning to the roster shall be according to seniority.
Assignments to extra duty jobs shall be made from the private/extra duty assignment roster. Assignments will be offered to the employee at the top of the list who will be off-duty during the hours of the offered assignment. If that employee accepts, works or refuses the assignment, his/her name will be moved to the bottom of the list and the next employee will be contacted. If the employee cannot be contacted, the next employee will be called, but the first employee will not lose his/her place in the rotation. In the event the private/extra duty assignment roster is exhausted, the Chief of Police, or his/her designee may allow employees not on the list to accept the assignment.
If the employee cancels, private/extra duty assignment, he/she cannot work any extra, private, or overtime assignments in the twenty-four (24) hour period commencing at 12:01 a.m. the day of the assignment to 12:01 a.m. the following day. An employee may not cancel a private/duty extra duty assignment to become eligible for any other assignment. Once assignments have been made, no "bumping" shall be allowed. An employee assigned to a private/extra job shall not "trade" or "exchange" the job to any other person, but must notify the Chief or his/her designee of inability to fill the assignment so that a reassignment may be made. Job assignments shall be cut off on Thursday at 1530 hrs. If Friday is a legal Holiday, than the closing time for assignments shall be Wednesday at 1530 hrs. This will not affect any last minute call for the work made by contractors. The Chief or his/her designee may hire assignments at any time prior to the job. The Chief or his/her designee may re-assign employees assigned to private/extra duty assignments to regular duty or other private/extra duty assignments for the operational needs of the Department.
The rate of pay for extra duty assignments shall be the employee's regular rate of pay. Extra duty hours worked in excess of forty actual hours worked shall be paid at time and one half the regular rate.
An employee injured on an extra duty assignment shall receive injury coverage in the same manner as provided for if injured on regular duty for the City.
Any employee who fails to report for duty on an extra duty assignment shall forfeit fourteen (14) days of private/extra duty assignments.
No employee shall be charged with sick leave for absence on account of sickness from extra duty assignments.
Any employee who reports "off duty sick" from an extra duty assignment shall be "off duty" until he/she calls in or reports back to his/her next scheduled tour of duty. No assignments will be scheduled during this period.
In the event of an error in the calling procedure, and an eligible employee is passed over, the eligible employee shall be offered the next private/extra duty assignment which the employee can accept within the two (2) weeks from the date the employee was passed over. This paragraph will not effect the hiring of private/extra duty employees who have already been hired. The two (2) week time limitation will not apply if the employee is on sick leave, injury leave, or vacation leave
