Areas of Law / Employment

I’ve worked 25 hours a week for a firm for the last 18 months, and do a lot of overtime. Should I be paid time-and-a-half for this? From what I understand you have to work 37 hours before you get time-and-a-half.

It depends what they’ve been paying you for working overtime in the past, and what it says in your contract about overtime pay. If they don’t pay enhanced rates at present, what you’ve been told is probably correct: under the Part-Time Workers’ Regulations you are entitled to the same hourly rate of pay as comparable full-time workers, and to the same hourly rate of overtime – but only once you have worked more than the normal full-time hours.
