  • Overtime & Vacation Days - Pennsylvania

    I saw on past threads that holiday time does not count towards OT pay. It has been repeated that it is "time worked" over 40 hours that officially counts towards OT. Does this also apply with Vacation days and/or sick days as well? Can an employee work 36 hours and use a vacation day of 8 hours and expect 4 hours overtime. I'm assuming not but I want to be sure. Thanks for your help.

    Overtime is calculated on time worked, not on time paid. Sick time, holiday time, vacation time, personal time, comp time (when applicable) and any other kind of paid time off do not count towards overtime.

    ONLY time ACTUALLY WORKED counts towards overtime. This is true in all 50 states.

    So no, in your example the employee would receive 44 hours of straight time.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
