Overtime

Work by a wage earner in excess of a statutory number or hours. For example, any time that a waged employee works over 40 hours in a week is usually considered overtime. Working overtime may entitle an employee to extra compensation, such as one and a half times his/her ordinary wage, which is often called time-and-a-half.

overtime

extra hours of work undertaken by an employee that are additional to the number of hours specified as constituting the ‘basic’ working week, and for which employees are paid a WAGE RATE higher than the ‘basic’ wage. Firms often resort to overtime working to meet sudden increases in orders, viewing overtime by the existing workforce as a more flexible and cheaper alternative to taking on extra workers. An overtime ban by employees can thus be a highly effective form of INDUSTRIAL ACTION.
