There is no such provision in the EA about that.

Does that means that all employees are actually entitled to overtime claim and that companies that do not allow certain employees to claim overtime is not correct?

Something must be clear. When the employer asks or authorises his employees to work overtime, it is only fair the employees concerned are rewarded. Otherwise, why should they agree to work overtime? Anyway, overtime work must be authorised by the superiors. Some employees do hang around after office hours to tidy up his own work or to avoid traffic jam or want to avoid facing the family and so on and want to claim overtime, then I think that shouldn't the case. It is an abuse. The important thing is that overtime work must be authorised and controlled by superiors to avoid abuses.
