  • You have been assigned to salary scale 10 or lower; 
  • You have worked more than half an hour of overtime each day.

You can declare your hours by using the following form:

You will be given an extra hour of leave for every hour of overtime that you have worked.

The percentages will then be increased by 100 percent.
