#tip 2: Labelling days off.
It is vitally important to correctly label days off at the planning stage. If an employee is summoned for work on such a day, the number and types of symbols used in schedules affect the type of overtime.
In the standard work time scheme, days off are always on Saturdays and Sundays. This changes for equivalent work time scheme. In this situation, Saturday and Sunday do not need to be days off. What then?
When drawing up the work time schedule, label days off appropriately to suggest that the employee has a day off, for example, on Wednesday under the five-days week schedule or has a day off on Friday instead of on Sunday.

This affects the calculation of additional pay directly. It can happen when an employee is summoned for work on a day they were to be off.
If an employee is summoned for 4-hour work on a day off under a five-day week scheme, they have to be given a day off according to the law. In the case of overtime on a day off under a five-day week scheme, the employee may only be granted time off and may not be remunerated for the overtime.
An employee was summoned for 4-hour work on a Sunday that was their day off or another day that was a day off instead of a Sunday. In this case, you have more options. The four hours worked are fully compensable, part of the overtime can be compensated for with another day off and the rest remunerated or the employee may be given time off on another day for the overtime.
