Special Overtime Rules

Special overtime rules apply to some types of employees, including live-in care providers, live-in domestics, ambulance attendants, firefighters on a platoon system, oil truck drivers delivering fuel to farms, commercial hog operation employees, some city newspaper employees and highway construction workers.

Overtime rules are also modified for employers who have negotiated modified work arrangements or time bank agreements with their employees, or who have received an Averaging of Hours Permit from the Director of Employment Standards. There are also rules for calculating overtime for employees not paid by the hour, such as by the day, the month, commission or production.

Please call the Employment Standards Division for more information about special overtime rules and permits.

Please contact the Occupational Health and Safety Division for information about fatigue management for employees working extensive overtime.
