Overtime claim

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 12:23:37 PM  (Last updated: Wed, 07 Sep 2016 10:42:37 AM)


I am working in operation as supervisor related to human resources for manufacturing and services. My salary over RM2000. Every month i need to do OT especially for emergency cases which is i need to attend no matter what the circumstances. My employer also paid my OT hour based on my OT claim. Recently i just study about overtime calculation and i realize my overtime paid for last 3 years for normal OT are paid for 1.0 times instead 1.5. There are few month the rate are different even though basis no change.

Q1 : May i know in this case employer have the right to pay 1.0 instead 1.5 for normal OT? 

Q2 : As an employee can i claim back the OT wrongly paid for last 3 years?

Since you are a supervisor, I think you may have a case to make claim for the OT paid at lower rate than 1.5x. If you have the records of all the monthly overtime worked, you can bring the case up to the local Labour Department. Let them look into the case for you. Go there in person.
