If the U.S. Senate goes along with the House, employees could soon be able to choose to get paid overtime or be given time off for hours worked over 40 per week.
It's called the Working Families Flexibility Act and would give workers flexibility to choose how they want to be compensated.
Karen Grothouse, with Spherion in Lima says it's great for workers who have been putting in lots of hours, but also creates a problem for employers who need to fill in holes when those workers demand time off.
The bill faces an uncertain future in the democratically controlled U.S. Senate.
