We at The Ultimate Handyman respect all employment and labor laws. Those obligations have to be respected by our customers too. Therefore you should expect different rates when those laws have to be applied.

Here are the rules:

All our workers start at 8:30am, unless you specifically request that they start earlier. If they start work on your property late that day, you need to assume that they have been working on other projects since 8:30am. A particular worker will take a 30 minute lunch break, plus 2 other 15-minutes breaks throughout the day and start his overtime rate at 5:30pm. Assuming that he agrees to keep working after 5:30pm, time-and-a-half rates will apply. As you might deduce, time-and-a-half is the regular hourly rate plus half of it again. Unless you want to be implicated in breaking the law and held liable for such act, be mindful of this law and the implications associated to hiring any employee on a hourly basis. When you ask any of our employees to stay working to finish your project, you are automatically accepting to abide by all employment laws, in this case, overtime laws.

Double Time
Assuming that our worker agrees to keep working after 9:30pm, double-time rates will apply. Double time is indeed the regular rate doubled. Eve if he says yes, check if this is possible by calling us. Because this may interfere with future scheduling, the particular employee may not be allowed to continue.
