So next pay I worked 87 hours in two weeks normally I work 8p hours. I've never had a job pay me ovettime. So I am not 100% sure. Now I Google it and it's says anything over full time 40 hours a week.

Overtime is if you work more than 40 hours per week. I usually work 50-60 hours which is considered overtime.

I called and asked them just to verify. They said if you work over 40 hours, or if you get paid per 2 weeks its over 80 hours.

@ricki_911 Are you going the get paid for the extra hours or they will note them and give you a day off for example?

@besweet yes, I'd get paid as we don't get sick days or vacation days.

I thought that is was over 44 hours that they have to pay time and a half. At my job they pay overtime after 40 hours because that is our normal work week.

@ricki_911 if you normal hoirs are 40 then you should be paid for any overtime after that.

Here in my country, anything in excess of the employee's regular working hours in a day is considered overtime work and the employer is obliged to pay the former's overtime pay. For instance, if the employee needs to render 8 hours a day of work, anything beyond that is considered overtime work. The hourly rate for overtime work is higher than the normal rate for regular working hours.

Interesting to know. I've never considered it as I've never had a job with overtime.

Anything over your normal maximum contracted working hours is overtime - if you only work a part time 20 hour shift the 21st hour is overtime. The company has to pay you but it is usually only at time and a half after 40 hours with some firms offering double time at weekends and triple time on bank holidays but many greedy businesses only offer ordinary hourly pay no matter what extra time you put in or when sometimes with a day off in luie for bank holiday work - it can be very arbitrary and depend what the contracts stipulates

I was going to say the one job I work, doesn't give any over time what so ever. This job just hands it to me but I didn't know how they figured it out. As my boss said if its over a certain amount.
