Time off in lieu

3.8

The overtime rates will apply whenever excess hours are worked over full time hours unless time is taken off in lieu. 

Employees not covered by a flexible working hours scheme may request to take time off in lieu as an alternative to overtime payments. Employees who, for operational reasons, are unable to take requested time off in lieu within three months must , if they wish, be paid at the appropriate overtime rate, detailed in Overtime and Premium Payments, for hours worked.  

Employees in All Hours Worked Grades, or subject to All Hours Worked Agreements, will not be entitled to overtime payments but may request to take time off in lieu of extra hours worked, where they are not covered by a flexible working hours scheme. 

Time off in lieu of additional hours worked will be taken at plain time (hour for hour) and only with the prior agreement of both the employee and their line manager.
