    It will be in your contract.

    My contract specifically says "you may occasionally be required to work additional hours over your contract, for which you will not be paid."

    However, whenever I have had to do this, in practice I have always had time in lieu back to cover it. No chance of me getting paid for it though.

    Not unless there is a specific reason, why are you working 45 hour weeks?

    Not since my boss and I booked 210 hours of overtime between us in a month.

    We had a site build and and office move and a couple of issues that required weekends as well.

    As above really it will be listed in your contract along with that lovely "any other duties" bit that always slides in there somewhere. if it does say something like "occasionally" and you are working more than you contracted hours to an extent where it is expected or the norm then I would bring it up. Personally I would think occasionally to be 1-2 weeks in 8. Anymore than that really I would be looking to accrue toil or time and a half back.

    But ultimately it depends on what you contract says (and its wording).

    You haven't really answered half the questions put to you, but at very least should tell us what it says you're contracted hours are per week,
    As well as any wording around having to do anything extra. It's a very poorly written contract if it simply states that if something takes over 8 hours then you need to stop and do it.

    110 hours in one month is my top figure in OT up to now, all paid with approved changes and prior approval from my management. Members of my team have worked in jobs where you get none, for the same job, it's all about what you signed up to do when you joined. Our management can't claim even an hour regardless of hours worked. I'm a techie so it comes with the territory, as does on call

    My contract and pay grade state that I don't get paid for any overtime. It is expected that I deliver a working solution.

    If we need to work outside of normal hours for a set period, say 2 hours late on a night then this will be agreed prior to the event and I will be able to claim Time off in Lieu.

    Other members of my team can claim overtime for agreed periods, however they are on a lower salary.

    Sounds great mate, not as good as you by the sounds of it ha ha I did get sent to our HQ in Paris for a few days but apart from that BAU. Made up for you mate, you deserve every success. I hope you're blowing it all on an unsustainable champagne lifestyle, it has to be done at least once ha ha

    haha, it has it's drawbacks.....i do miss aspects of the day-to-day support/troubleshooting which don't really do much of, and there is a mountain of paperwork and processes to follow before getting to do hands on stuff! But learning all the time which is good (and the reason i left the last job).

    Unfortunately no champagne lifestyle, bought a flat and now doing sensible things like saving and planning for the future haha :)

    In both my last role and my current one overtime is unpaid. The difference is the amount of overtime I do has reduced to near nothing since I made the jump.
