Employees Overtime

Anything over 40 hours, a worker will be compensated according to the laws on overtime. I think this is true to most of the countries all over the world. The worker is not required to work overtime but, some companies have a mandatory requirement to all their employees to have the overtime. This is required by the management especially when the lack the manpower at certain time. Holidays and special events are mostly the time needed by a certain company such as hotels, casino and restaurants. This is also true in establishments such as rent-a-car and airports.

Well, when I was working as a teacher, we have no overtime paid because we are in the category of a salaried employee. We actually works 8 hours a day and when we are called to report even on weekends, we have to report because our weekends was also paid off. During summer vacation, even if we do not teach for 2 months, we are paid also. Unlike an hourly employee, they can work 8 hours a day plus, overtime. The overtime pay is much higher. Most of the time, the rate would be 1.5 plus higher. If you are an employee, make sure you know the law of overtime. Check out the link provided here.
