Hi guys


I have a query regarding overtime rates for employees who receive a shift premium, i have scoured the internet but can't find anything relevant.


I receive a shift premium for working day/back/night shift, averaging out at 37 hours per week, over 8 weeks.


When I work overtime on day/back/night shift, my payment is calculated based on my basic salary, without shift premium.


I would assume that my premium is paid for my contractual 37 hours a week and any further shifts I work in overtime should include an additional premium for those hours.


Can anyone confirm if this is right and direct me to some legislation relating to it.


Thanks in Advance

Shift premiums and overtime rates would be contractual issues. If a premium applies to working between particular times, or if an overtime rate kicks in when working over X hours per week, then that rate should apply for hours worked. The hourly rates should be published somewhere within your organisation and you will need to check this and challenge directly with payroll.

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

I would assume that you get paid £x per hour and a shift premium of £y per shift cycle. This means that overtime will be £x times say 1.5 times for the hours workd but as that isnt changing the shif cycle the premium is the set sum. so pay for a particular week with overtime whould be (£x times 37 hours + overtime of z hours @ £x times 1.5) plus shift allowance
