Dear Sir,
My self Hariprasad and working in one of the leading Travel company in Bangalore. Our office timing is 9.00 Am to 5.30 PM. but other than ladies most of all accounts people work till 7.00 PM. when was asking for OT payment, the senior told that the OT is only for the Labour class and not for the executive level. Is that correct?

Dear HariPrasad, If you are working for more than eight hours in a day and or working for more than 48 hours in a week, you are eligible for over time as per present rule in vogue.

Normally senior executives in the company is part of mangement and not come under workmen , as such not entitled overtime. Otherwise they are eligible. However it depends on company policy .

You can lodge complaint with
Inspector under Karnataka Shops and Commercial Establishments Act.As per rules prescribed under this Act employer has to record in/out time,OT in registers/Forms prescribed vide Karnataka Shops and Commercial Establishments Rules.....
Falsification of record is offence.
The Inspector should agree that you are covered by the def. Of 'Employee' under this Act.
You can seek help from employees unions,Dept. Of labor officials, your lawyer

you can avail compensatory off for the overtime worked.
You are supposed to have approval from your supervisor for working extra hours and the same can be availed as compensatory off.
Don't go for overtime wage or whatever. it will be very complicated issue. In some factories, workmen also coming forward to avail comp offs rather than availing over time wages.
If we cant complete the same / our work in the prescribed time, we will be forced to work extra hours. Two things are involved here.
One is our poor performance to complete the work in 8 hours. Second is Manpower shortage in the company which will create burden to existing manpower.

From your description yours is an establishment covered by your State's Shops and Estt. Act. Eventhough the State Acts differ from one another in respect of certain specific provisions, the scheme and the principles of the various Shops and Estt Acts are the same or similar. All these Acts call the people employed therein ( if I were correct) as " person employed" only and do not make any distinction such as labour, executive, manager etc. The generality of the features of this definition of various Shop Acts is that the hired person should have been " wholly or principally employed in connection with the business of the establishment" subject to the condition statutory exemption mentioned in the respective Act - that's all. That's how an employee though not a workman under the Industrial Disputes Act but if employed in a Shop or Establishment is empowered to prefer appeal against his unlawful termination under the respective S&E Act. There are lots of judgments holding that " Person employed" means that the Act applies and covers employees in higher income groups if not specifically exempted and therefore it is not merely confined to workmen.

As far as i know that an employee does not eligible for OT. because employee get the salary for his service and a workers get the wages for his service so a workers is eligible for OT for late hours.
in case of late sitting of staff, you can make a policy and you can give them cash benefits on depends on completion of fixed working hours or you can them C.off benefits on completion of 08 Hours late sitting.
