Many organisations require all or some staff to work more than their contracted hours. They may choose to pay for these additional hours, or to give compensatory time off in lieu (TOIL), or a combination of these. Many smaller employers choose to offer TOIL as they cannot afford the additional expense of paying for overtime. An employee's contract of employment should clearly state whether he or she is entitled to time off in lieu for overtime worked.
