Hi, may i know what is the overtime rate for staff working at midnight?

A staff go back home after 5.30pm, after that my boss call him back to work at 12.00am to 1.30am, what is the overtime rate i should pay him? is it a special rate or special allowance for midnight overtime?

Thank you.

There is no special rate, still 1.5x  As for allowance, it is up to the company to fix one.

To gilson: Since your salary is more than 2k, you may not be covered by the Employment Act and that formula may not be applicable to you. Despite that, I think your company is not giving you a fair deal by paying RM10 per hour OT when they require you to work OT. Try to negotiate for a better deal.

By the way what is your occupation with the company?
