Overtime in a Modified Work Arrangement or Averaging of Hours Permit

Employers who have a modified work arrangement (MWA) or an averaging of hours permit must pay overtime after the daily limit or the hours in the averaging period are exceeded.

For example, if the daily limit in a permit is 12 hours, employees earn overtime after working more than 12 hours in 24 consecutive hours. If the averaging period is 80 hours over two weeks, employees earn overtime after working more than 80 hours.

If a public holiday falls within the averaging period, the overtime threshold is reduced by eight hours. For example, if a public holiday fell during an averaging period of 80 hours over two weeks, the overtime threshold would be 72 hours.
