If an employee works overtime without company approval, are they eligible for overtime pay?

Overtime pay only applies if the employer requires the employee to work beyond normal working hours.

You are encouraged to seek your employer’s approval if you need to work overtime. This is to avoid disputes on overtime pay.

Employers should clearly communicate their overtime policies, and work with employees to manage their workload.
