The Overtime Pay concept is applicable mostly to blue collar employees who receive wages for their work. When these employees work beyond the stipulated working hours, they are entitled to receive an overtime pay. Overtime pay could be for additional hours of work or for work on weekends or holidays.
For instance, a worker receives Rs.50 per hour for the work he does in a typical 8 hour work schedule. The policy could be that the worker would receive Rs.100 for every additional hour he works and probably Rs.150 per hour to work on holidays and Sundays as overtime pay.
