    Hello Sunshine,

     

    From our HR department regarding this request.

     

    “Telecommunications receive Blended Overtime pay which incorporates eligible supplemental pays before calculating overtime. This calculation is done by payroll software and depends on how many hours of overtime the employee worked and which eligible supplemental pays they receive (i.e. night shift differential). ”
