What is overtime
Overtime work is work that exceeds a part-time employee's normal daily working hours.
As a part-time employee, you are entitled to pay for overtime work. The payment depends on whether your hours exceed the normal working hours of a similar full-time employee.
Calculating overtime pay
Your overtime pay is calculated as follows:
|If hours worked
||Overtime pay is calculated
|Exceed your daily working hours but less than a full-time employee's normal hours
||At your basic hourly rate of pay
|Exceed a full-time employee's normal hours
||At your basic hourly rate x 1.5
You work 4 hours a day and a full-time employee works 8 hours. Your hourly basic rate of pay is $5. If you work 9 hours in a day, your overtime pay is:
(8 hours x $5) + (1 hour x $5 x 1.5) = $47.50
