From time to time employees may be required to work longer hours to accommodate a pressing work issue, attend meetings or represent the organisation outside of their usual working hours.
Time off in lieu of paid overtime may be offered as an option to employees who are required to work hours beyond their normal contractually agreed work hours.
This arrangement is designed to ensure that an employee is not working excessive hours and to ensure work/life balance.
Having a policy on time in lieu will ensure all parties are on the same page about what is and is not acceptable.
