Such an employee shall be entitled to receive one (1) hour of overtime compensation for any and all calls which cumulatively total one (1) hour or less within each 12-hour period. When the cumulative time of calls exceeds one (1) hour, an employee shall be entitled to receive overtime compensation for the cumulative time of the calls to the nearest quarter of an hour. Phone work performed during a regularly scheduled telecommuting assignment is not eligible for payment under this Section.
