TOIL and Overtime

Time Off In Lieu (TOIL)

  • If a member of staff works more than their contracted hours in their working week (overtime), they are entitled to time off in lieu (TOIL).
  • The decision to work additional hours needs to be agreed in advance with one’s manager, and the subsequent decision to take time off in lieu also needs to be agreed in advance with one’s manager.
  • TOIL should not be built up, and should be taken as soon as possible after the overtime has been worked.
  • One hour of overtime earns one hour of TOIL, irrespective of the time or day when the overtime is worked.

Paid Overtime

Paid overtime is not available to managers or administrative staff. In the following departments only, there is an option for paid overtime as an alternative to TOIL:

  • Housekeeping
  • Catering
  • Maintenance
  • Gardens.

As with TOIL, the decision to work additional hours needs to be agreed in advance with one’s manager.

Overtime is calculated as follows

Hours worked up to a total of 37.5 hours within the first five days of your working week are paid at single time (ie 1 x your hourly rate).
Hours worked above a total of 37.5 hours within the first five days of your working week are paid at time-and-a-half (ie 1.5 x your hourly rate).
Hours worked on a sixth or seventh day in your working week are paid at time-and-a-half (ie 1.5 x your hourly rate).
