Clarifies the 10 hour shift for me, thanks.Semantics.
If you get held over for 2 hours on a normal 8 hour shift, it is overtime for lets say Monday. If you work 3 more 8 hour shift on Tuesday - Thursday and take leave on Friday. you get still paid for that 2 hours of overtime.
And yes, i have been held over after a 10 hr shift. But you cant work traffic. I was held over because of an aircraft incident on my last rotation and needed to give a written statement.
But what about his statement are you saying is wrong about OT?
Anything over 40 hours is overtime. He never said that leave doesn't count in getting to the 40 hour week.Typically 8 hour days, some places work four 10 hour days. You get paid OT for anything over forty hours in a week (so yes, typically anything over eight hours).
