Overtime and Weekend Penalty Rates Explained

If overtime or weekend work is required, you should be aware of the conditions.

Ask your employer:

  • What counts as overtime? Hours worked over 8 hours per day or anytime on a weekend
  • What will my overtime pay rate be? 1 & 1/2 times your base rate for the first 2 hours, then double your base rate there after
  • Should I be receiving penalty rates for working overtime (time and a half or double time)? Yes
  • Do penalty rates apply for weekend or late night work? Yes

Speak with our Apprenticeship Payroll Team 02 8586 3533 if you have any questions

You can use the FairWork pay calculator External link to calculate base pay rates, allowances and penalty rates (including overtime)
