    I am working as a Software engineer in a private software company. We usually have to do overtime to complete the projects early and there is also a provision of allowance of overtime. But over the past six months,my overtime money is pending and my boss is asking to overtime more. WHat should I do now?

    hello..

    this is simple and easy friend..first appall you should ask yourself whether you are believe your boss or not?

    if you believe your boss you can work extra time.surely they will settle your amount..

    otherwise you can refuse the extra work due to some personal work or family situation.

    thank you..

    Hi, Being polished but not prudish(coy) should be the principle of a corporate employee. Neither you should be too reserved or submissive nor you should be aggressive or loud in corporate environment. Rather put your points across the management in a very polished and matured way. Now, before taking up any more overtime task, you can write a mail to your reporting manager, explaining your concern about the non payment of your previous overtime amount. Write to him politely that these small monetary benefits work as motivator for everyone and encourages you to take up overtime challenges as well. Do not be rude and refuse work but just put in your request for the payment your dues and continue with your work. In case, you do not get the payment on time, then in the coming future, you can always present a medical certificate showing a genuine reason for not working overtime, but do not fight or refuse up front inviting enmity of your manager. Learn to be more tactful and smart. Thanks.

    Be fair and clear in the job because if you will not think about your profit then your loss is sure that is why think about your right that you have to get from the company and then start working again

    If your last payment is not received yet then you should talk to your boss when he is free in the office and request them to give you your previous allowance of overtime that you did before 6 months so your boss may give you your previous payment and if they say that they will pay after sometime then you should take the date of the payment because he may excuse on this matter because getting payment is not easy

    If your boss say that you will get paid after one month then you should say that you need some money in urgent because some of your personal works are pending then your boss will understand and give you your previous payment and do not hesitate in making excuses in front of your boss because you just have to get your previous money and also say to your boss that sir I will start working over time but currently I need some money and I will start working after 1 week but this time I need money before a week to complete my other works so please help me in this situation and I am sure that boss will pay you due amount

    When you asked for overtime then you should accept that but do not start working overtime because if you will do so then your previous payment will be due in future too and current overtime payment also may be pending for a long time that is why if you will not work overtime and make good excuses that you just have some work after the office hours so your manager will understand that you will not stop in office until you receive the previous payment then he will pay you that amount which is pending

    All the best

    dear friend...

    Firstly talk to your boss..inform that the work given to you is up to date,,,no pending work left..

    Next coming to overtime work..inform him politely that you have not received any amount for OT work for the last 6 months...

    Inform him that these small benefits work as motivator for everyone.

    Listen what your boss is going to tell....act accordingly.

    Pending money for the six months is too much and that too the money for which you have already done a lot over time. Overtime which means that you cut short your personal time into your office work just with the aim of completing your task along with the desire of mentintg money. And whats wrong in that!

    Now take a stand and dont fear as in order to work with the same determination you must get the equal return to that! Go to your boss and talk to him very politely and convince him that you are in the requirement of money and any how you need it urgently and please prove you your overtime allowance this time and this will not only make a great help to you but will also do your work with the same interest and spirit.
    If he doesn't agree and says to continue the overtime but with payment even this month and politely refuse to do that saying that i am finding it difficult to manage the day with the overtime and silently move out.

    If you have the talent then your boss will for sure look upon your silent protest and will react affirmatively.

    Good luck!

    Hello Aspirant,

    In practical,there are many problems to be faced both in professional & real life.Every thing does not go normal.This situation applies for both the organisation & as well as for human being.Your overtime money is pending for the last six months,there may be certain reasons for it.You should enquire from your boss & be cleared as to why the payment is pending,will it be paid or not & if it is to be paid ,when should I expect the same?

    Depending upon the replies you get,you can decide whether to work for over time or not.Also you have to see that this problem is your personal or common to all of your cadres.If it is common,you should take a mass decision other wise you may be sacked by the management.In order to take mass decision,you should discuss the matter jointly with your colleagues,represent or oppose jointly.If it is your personal problem,then you may go alone depending upon the situation.If your boss asks you to work & assures you for payment,you should support his order & work for over time.

    Good luck.

    hi
    you should not do the overtime if you are not provided with the overtime till now.
    You need to write down an application stating that as you have not got your overtime expenses yet, therefore you are not in a condition of working any further.
    I think by giving him some unfluential words would lead him to give your expenses.
    Gud luck

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is good to have the provision of over time allowance in your company.Since your dues in this regard is pending from the past six months,you are required to enquire of the matter with your boss & in account section.You should know whether this is your personal matter or for all the employees.You should also know whether you are expecting to get the dues amount or not.If not,you should not work for over time allowances.

    If you expected to get the payment,you should continue to work for over time duty otherwise you may refuse for it because it may hamper your other works.But if the matter is common,the decision should be taken jointly other wise you may be sacked by the management.If it is your personal matter,you may go alone depending upon the situation.

    So see the situation & move ahead.

    Thanks & good luck.

    hello friend

    it is very sad to hear that you haven't got the past 6 months overtime money.

    for this you and other colleague in the office should together to go your boss and explain him the your problem as when you don't get what you deserve from your work then you slowly loose the interest in the work,and your efficiency also increases .
    you can politely explain all these problem to your boss and also tell that you are in need of money and you need it urgently.
    when all the members will together force the boss then there might be the possibilty that your boss may agree.

    all the best
    thank you.
