Overtime during lunch?


If I worked during my lunch time does that entitle me to overtime?



  • Did you do this work voluntarily or by his request?
  • Hi thanks for the reply. I did this at his request - company has some due dates that we're cutting very short.

    Does it make a difference?
  • Absolutely. If you did so by his request then you're entitled to overtime pay because you'd have worked over 40 hours a week (since breaks are included in the 8 hour/day figure).

    If you did so on your own, your employer isn't responsible for overtime as you voluntarily worked during the break period, which is by no means required.
  • Got it. Thanks very much
