Members of staff covered by the Leicester Joint Agreement and employed within grades 1 – 5 may claim overtime payments where it has been agreed in advance that additional hours above the normal working week (37 hours per week for staff in grades 1 and 2, 35 hours per week for staff in grades 3, 4 and 5) need to be undertaken. Further guidance is available from the link at the end of this page.
Information in this section does not apply where members of staff:
- Have contractual overtime already built into their terms of employment;
- Are employed on grade 6 or above – see the separate guidance document on indeterminate hours.
- Are covered by the Leicester Manual and Ancillary Agreement, where separate arrangements apply.
Eligible members of staff wishing to make a claim should do so on one of the approved forms, available from the Division of Finance and Business Development's forms and guidance page.
