I am a Part Timer. Is my OT Rate x1.5?

As a Part Timer (PT) under the Employment Act, you will be entitled to OT if you exceed your normal daily working hours. The rate is as follow:

If less than or equal to the normal daily working hours of a FT –   x1
If more than the normal daily working hours of a FT – x1.5

For example, if the daily working hours of a PT is 5 hours, and on the other hand the daily working hours of a FT is 7 hours a day, and the PT is scheduled for 3 hours of OT, the rate of payment is as follow:

  • first 2 hours of OT     – x1
  • the last 1 hour of OT – x1.5
