Time in Lieu

Time In Lieu (TIL) is time off which staff are allowed to take for hours worked beyond the normal working day. TIL applies to additional periods of work either before or after the normal working day. It does not apply to lunch periods. It is different from “Overtime”, because, in overtime, an employee has actually been paid for extra hours. The approval of TIL instead of overtime is subject to operational requirements of the function, as determined by a supervisor/manager. TIL should only be approved on the basis that the staff member is required to be in attendance outside of normal working hours. It only commences after a staff member has clocked out in respect of their normal working/rostered hours.
