I have a client who has fuloughed their employees this week.
The employees earn basic pay every week, and then they also do overtime at variable hours each week, occasionally no overtime, but in the main they do overtime as well.
The employees have no formal contract of employment, so nothing to look up there. The overtime is not guaranteed, but in the main always do some, even if it is just 1 hour.
As I believe they are relying on this overtime for their normal standard of living, in calculating their 80% of gross pay, should I include basic pay and overtime in this instance with it forming part of their normal pattern?
