Can an employer ask me to sign an overtime agreement?
This question has an answer and 3 steps

Try to cancel an averaging agreement

To cancel an averaging agreement before it ends, you and your employer must both agree.

And when an agreement ends, you don't have to renew it.

It's against the law for an employer to punish or fire you if you ask to cancel an agreement or refuse to renew an agreement.

But some employers don't follow the law. Sometimes an employer will say you made an agreement but:

  • you didn't make an agreement
  • you didn't understand the agreement
  • your employer forced you to agree even though you didn’t want to

If any of these apply to you, you might need to get legal help.
