I work 28 hours per week for the NHS (band 3). I do these hours Monday to Thursday. I have been offered overtime on Sundays.
I understand that for over time pay (time and a half etc) this only applies over and above 37.5 hours so I would be paid plain hours until this point. However, are these hours on Sunday subject to unsociable hours pay even before I hit 37.5 hours?
Could you do them as bank hours and then you would get the additional. SUNDAY payment. For example I do a second NHS job in the evening which is contracted at 7 hours. If I do an extra bank shift on a Sunday I get the Sunday rate.
Not sure how it works for you, but for us if I do unsocial overtime (nights or weekends) then I just get paid the overtime rate... our unsocial is based purely on basic hours rather than shifts by choice!
But equally i am not on section2, and i believe there may be some leeway on that from what colleagues have said...
I’ve never worked 37.5 , always part time , whenever I have worked weekends I always receive enhancements. It’s not overtime. Sunday is slightly more than a Saturday. I guess all Trusts are different, I get time and a third for a Saturday and time and two thirds Sunday.
