Kelly time
 n.— «My department uses the phrase kelly time. FLSA allows firefighters to work up to 204 hours within a 28 day period without requiring the employer to pay overtime. Anything over 204 must be paid at time and one half. All firemen at my station are assigned to a 24 hour shift and must work 216 hours within a 28 day period. We are required to take 12 hours of kelly time off within that 28 days to avoid overtime.» —“Kelly Day” by csy113 Firehouse Forums July 2, 2001. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
