Guam - Firefighters are not entitled to receive overtime pay when they are on leave. That's the conclusion from the Attorney General's Office after receiving a request back in April from the fire department on whether firefighters should be compensated for 106 or 120 hours.

Personnel who work at the fire stations work a total of 120 hours during a two week pay period-106 hours of regular pay and 14 hours of overtime.  According to information and guidance provided to the department, firefighters on leave for an entire pay period should only be compensated for 106 hours of their regular pay rate and are not entitled to overtime pay while on leave whether annual or sick.
