Regarding the payment of owed overtime upon dismissal
The Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Russian Federation has clarified the payment procedure of overtime work upon dismissal before the end of the accounting period.
For workers with a summarized accounting of working hours, overtime is work over normal number of working hours for the accounting period.
If the employee is dismissed before the end of the accounting period, then there is a question of need to define overtime work and its payment.
The Ministry of Labour and Social Protection in this regard has specified that, the employee with the summarized accounting of working hours who leaves before the end of the accounting period has the right to the increased overtime payment, just like any other employee.
For the exact overtime calculation of work it is necessary to calculate the normal duration of working hours for work actually fulfilled as a part of the accounting period, and to compare it with the number of the hours which are actually fulfilled in this part.
It follows from this that the hours exceeding the normal duration of working hours will be overtime and are subject to the increased payment.
According to Article 152 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation, payment is made for the first two working hours in amount not less than one-and-a-half, in the subsequent hours – not less than double.
