I work 40 hours per week. Will my OT rate be based on that?

If you are covered under Part IV of the Employment Act, you will be eligible for OT under the Act.

The Act states that OT calculation for monthly-rated employee will be based on:
(Basic Salary x 12 months) / (52 weeks x 44 hours per week) * 1.5 times

Thus, even if you work less than 44 hours a week, OT will be calculated based on a 44 hour work week.
