Part Time Working - Overtime
An officer working an average of 31.5 hours a week over a two week period. One week is for example 3 x 9 hour shifts = 27 hours and the next 4 x 9 hours =36 hours. Overtime is plain time up until 40 hours, and then enhanced. It is the average determined hours (31.5 in this example) as the starting point for plain time up until the 40 hours weekly total despite the fact that one week is a shorter working week.

The overtime does not start until it is over and above your average determined hours, regardless of the week. In this example the officer would have to work 8.5hrs before they received the enhanced pay rate.
