Re: OT policy

My company recently change policies about OT claim. It stated :-

"The OT can't be claim if staff not work more than 1 hour after the normal working hour"

Example : Our normal working hour is 9am - 5pm but normally we will work until 5.30 like that to finish up some report. Our HR said in the labour law stated OT is calculate by hour so if we no do over 1 hour can't claim it. Mean we need at least work until 6pm only entitle 1 hour OT then follow up by 7pm for 2 hour and so on.

It is not fair to us that work extra time to company. The extra time just burn like that. The time if calculate the whole month at least got 10 hour OT we entitle.

1) The OT really is calculate by hour?
2) Is the company doing the right thing?

My salary is below 1.5k
