Is overtime paid?

As a general rule, overtime must be paid. Overtime is when you work more hours than you would normally have to (daily working hours). Overtime exists in the legal sense if your employer instructed you to work overtime or knew that you were working overtime and did nothing about it.

In certain cases, your employment contract may contain different regulations about the payment of overtime. Sometimes overtime is not paid, but compensated in time off (time off in lieu).

Please note: it is important that you write down your working hours. Then you can prove how many hours you have worked and check your payslip.

If your overtime is not paid and not compensated in time off, get help and contact your Fair Integration advice centre!
