What is voluntary overtime and how do you compensate it?

Employers can allow employees to work up to 120 voluntary overtime hoursto respond to peak periods. This overtime does not have to be paid in full.

With this type of overtime, employees are indeed entitled to their normal wages, plus the overtime bonus. However, they cannot recuperate them with catch-up rest or a payout of 150%. Moreover, the first 25 hours do not count towards the internal overtime limit.
