1. You cannot do that for a driver.
2. Under the EA, the overtime limit per month is 104 hours . If the employer wants to exceed that limit will have to apply to the Labour Department in writing. I suggest you consult the Labour Department for details. Refer to Section 60A(4)(a) of the EA for details of the law.

If you are cover by EA, then it will be as follow:-

Monthly paid employee work on PH
Normal working hour x2 (excluded from basic) = triple
OT x3 = Triple

For piece rate worker
Piece rate x3 = triple

If you are not cover with EA then you need refer back to your offer letter or go to your HR department and ask for further info.

Since your working days is Mon-Fri 9-6pm, then working on Saturday and Sunday 9-5pm is not consider OT. It is consider working on rest days.

Section 60(3)
For daily, hourly and piece rated employee = double the ordinary rate

For monthly rated employee:-
Half day's wages (calculated on ordinary rate of pay basis) if working for half a day or less.
1 day's wages if working more than half a day but not more than 1 day during normal working hour

*Work on PH different calculation
