Roy Murray asked 1 month ago

I work in an office and I am frequently asked to stay late or work on weekends. I don't mind doing it occasionally, but I would like to be compensated for my overtime. How do I ask for this without sounding entitled or greedy?

Asking for overtime compensation can be tricky, but it's important to remember that you're entitled to this compensation by law. You can start by talking to your boss and asking if there is any way to be compensated for the extra hours you're working. If they are resistant, you can remind them that by law, you are entitled to overtime pay. If they still refuse, you may need to talk to HR or even consult a lawyer. Remember, you deserve to be compensated for your hard work, so don't be afraid to advocate for yourself!
