Overtime can be defined as the number of hours worked by an employee that exceed their normally scheduled working hours.

The pay for overtime hours is usually more than the normal pay. It starts at 1.25 times the current pay and can go as high as 2 times the current pay, for the number of overtime hours worked during a particular period.

Your company may have different policies governing overtime pay in your organization, contact the HR department to find out more.
