If overtime is provided on a regular basis, the employer may require its employees to be associated with a “financing agreement.” This must be written in, with the strict requirements of section 37 of the act to be met. We recommend a professionally prepared funding agreement to ensure that you meet all the technical requirements of Section 37.
