What if your overtime is not compensated for?

If your employer has neglected their responsibility to keep working hour records, your own records can make a significant difference when claiming receivables based on the Working Hours Act. Therefore, you should keep a record of your own working hours.

Working hours can be entered in an Excel sheet, for example:

  • Time of arrival to work each day;
  • Time of departure;
  • On a general level, what did you do during the working day;
  • You can send a collective list to your employer on a monthly or weekly basis by email.

If you are unsure about matters that concern your working hours, we advise you to contact our legal counsels for employment counselling.
