- I have seen your writings on pyramiding of overtime and was wondering if you could help on this issue. We are following a bargaining unit contract and up until July 4, 2016, if we worked on the holiday it went towards our 40. Well this time, the company says since we get a negotiated rate to work the holiday they are considering it pyramiding of overtime and will not count towards are 40, any help will be appreciated.
Here’s my response: I appreciate your reading my content & contacting me. However, & just so you understand, I represent companies. With that said, I’m still happy to answer your questions. However (it’s always “however” & “but” with lawyers!), I also need to make sure that I have no conflict of interest in answering your questions. So, either I have to know whom your employer is, or you have to refuse to tell me & maintain anonymity, & I’ll answer you in the blind.
