   (b)   Longevity compensation shall be paid to eligible full-time non-bargaining employees. Longevity compensation shall be paid on the scheduled pay day immediately preceding November 1.
   (c)   Any full-time non-bargaining employee receiving longevity compensation as set forth in subsection (a) hereof shall, in addition thereto, be required  to be employed and work not less than 1,800 hours during the twelve months preceding the computation of such compensation.
   (d)   Longevity compensation rates shall be computed on continuous years of employment service and not upon any wage or salary rate. Service for purposes of longevity compensation is defined as a full-time position of trust or employment in the service of the City involving not less than 1,800 hours of work per twelve-month period from December 1 until December 1 of the following year.
   (e)   Hours of work is defined as working or duty hours, including hours paid for vacations, sick leave or other paid authorized absences. Overtime hours worked will not be counted or computed in determining the 1,800 hour basic computation requirement for an eligible service year.
   (f)   For full-time non-bargaining employees who leave the service of the City, for reasons other than discharge or resignation, the following provisions for longevity compensation shall apply:
      (1)   In cases of separation from public service because of death or permanent disability, longevity compensation will be prorated and paid as of the time of separation. In the case of a deceased employee, longevity compensation shall be paid to the next of kin or executor or administrator of the estate.
      (2)   Any non-bargaining employee retiring before December 1 of the calendar year shall receive longevity compensation on a pro rata basis as determined on the date of his or her retirement, payable at the time of retirement.
   (g)   In computing longevity compensation for the first eligible year, the employee shall be compensated on a pro rata month-to-month basis, determined by the number of months (an eligible month for prorata being twenty or more days) between the employee's sixth anniversary date of employment and the next December 1. Such pro rata compensation shall be added to the first entitlement of longevity compensation.
   (h)   The monetary value of proration as described in this section shall be determined by the following formula: eligible months divided by twelve, times the entitlement amount as set forth in subsection (a) hereof.
