Department of Labour Relations

Overtime work must be compensated at a rate of at least 1:1, and it must be stated in writing in the contract of employment. In case of a different agreement, through a collective agreement or personal contract, for overtime work, then this is compensated as agreed.

If overtime is included in the total amount of the agreed salary, the extra hours must be defined.

For shop, hotel and catering services/establishments employees, overtime is determined by relevant applicable legislation.
