Why would an employer have overtime agreements if the procedure for overtime is outlined in an Administrative Procedure and Labour Standards?

Interesting Q, Monique. Caveat: Since I don’t know what jurisdiction you’re in, I can’t look up what your particular Labour Standards law says re: overtime procedures. I’m also not sure what Admin. Procedure you’re referring to. What I can do, though, is offer a general answer based on the way labour standards overtime rules work. Role of the labour standards laws: Lay out basic ground rules governing overtime arrangements. Role of the overtime contract: Furnish the specific, operational details of the particular arrangement in accordance with the labour standards rules and restrictions. Examples: Overtime averaging and banking. The labour standards laws explain when, if ever, such arrangements are allowed at all, whether they require govt. and/or employee approval, restrictions that apply, etc. It’s then up to the employers and employees to negotiate an appropriate averaging or banking arrangement that complies with those restrictions and secure the required approvals. Hope that helps. Glenn Demby, 203 354-4532
