More importantly, Bill 66 removed the requirement for employers to obtain authorization from the Director of Employment Standards before entering into overtime averages and overtime agreements. For most employees, overtime begins as soon as the employee has worked more than 44 hours per work week. This means that they must receive an overtime allowance for the working time of more than 44 hours during the work week. Overtime pay must be at least 1/2 times the worker`s normal wage. The discrepancies in regularly scheduled hours do not relate to changes in the calendar. They refer to variations in the number of hours scheduled daily or weekly (or both) depending on the schedule. The change in the number of hours planned must be based on the need for operation. One way to find that a period of time is not sufficient is to compare a company`s peak periods with periods when there are fewer hours of work available, by analyzing historical data from the company`s time and wage data for the previous year. This will give an indication of the needs of the company. The normal working time of an average employee is 40 times the weekly working time during the average period; The maximum number of hours worked should not exceed 48 times the weekly working time during the average period. For an average of two weeks, for example, the standard and maximum hours are 80 hours and 96 hours respectively. The employer and the worker agreed in writing that the worker`s hours of work can be used for a period of two weeks to determine overtime pay and that the worker can work up to 54 hours per work week (six hours above the general daily limit). Employment Services (LAOs) officers check whether an employer`s qualification criteria for the adoption of funding measures are met and whether the rules of means are properly applied.
These criteria are as follows: other ESA overtime provisions, such as .B. The requirements for daily and weekly leave remain in effect. Employees can still revoke overtime contracts with a two-week delay. A situation in which employees regularly work hours, but the number of hours actually worked varies from time to time would not be eligible for an average. For example, a bus driver may have a regular schedule, but may sometimes work longer because of heavy traffic.
