Ban on fully-paid overtime being lifted

As of January 1, the government ban on fully-paid overtime is being lifted. And surprisingly it is the private sector that is complaining the most.
Bosses are saying the relaxing of austerity rules over overtime on Bank Holidays and other “extra hours” will dent profits and competitivity.
They are calling for the ban to be deferred until October 2015 “at least”. According to SIC TV news on Monday, the government thus far is unlikely to reconsider.
