Night duty and overtime compensation for same hours

Unread post by karien@01 » 15 Jul 2016, 10:55

Good day,
Is an employee entitled to Night Shift Allowance as well as overtime payment for the same hours? E.g. employee worked 45 hours (all at night as he is working nightshift), therefor 5 hours are overtime, (o/t more than 40 hrs). Is NDA payable on all 45 hrs or only 40 hours, as he will be paid overtime (1.5) for 5 hours?

When employees work night shift, they are entitled to a night shift allowance (for ALL the night shift hours). Only the hours more than 40 are overtime hours.
