Stop paying your employees overtime!

You don't have to pay your employees money for working overtime...

That means no more having to do overtime calculations or deal with angry employees because of overtime miscalculations.

Read on to discover the four alternatives you can use to compensate your employees instead of spending thousands every month.

****************************************

 

These four employees aren't entitled to overtime pay, says the BCEA

 
You don't have to give overtime pay to the following employees:
 
  1. Senior managerial employees;
 
  1. Sales staff who travel to customers and who regulate their own hours of work;
 
  1. Employees who work less than 24 hours a month for you; and
 
  1. Employees who earn more than the current annual earnings threshold of R205 433.30. Please note that the Minister of Labour changes the threshold from time to time.)
 
Be warned! According to the Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf Service, despite what the BCEA says, if you've agreed in your employment contract to pay overtime, you're bound by your agreement even if your employee ends up earning more than the annual earnings threshold (R205 433.30.)
 
Knowing about the four employees who aren't entitled to overtime pay will help you handle overtime effectively.
