Based on the data collected, the report finds that many employees do not receive adequate compensation for working additional hours and highlights the amount of unpaid overtime worked by professional employees even at junior levels.
Our claim, if successful, will require in the case of new and recent graduates, that any additional hours worked are to be measured and compensated at the level of similar employees who do not possess professional qualifications.
