If an employee renders overtime, he will be receiving an additional 30 percent for his hourly rate.

- Employers should implement the “no work, no pay” principle
- If they render work, they will be receiving 30 percent for his daily rate
- With overtime, they will receive 30 percent on their hourly rate
