  1. Overtime

    Overtime is the amount of time someone works beyond normal working hours. Normal hours may be determined in several ways: ⁕by custom, ⁕by practices of a given trade or profession, ⁕by legislation, ⁕by agreement between employers and workers or their representatives. Most nations have overtime labor laws designed to dissuade or prevent employers from forcing their employees to work excessively long hours. These laws may take into account other considerations than the humanitarian, such as preserving the health of workers so that they may continue to be productive, or increasing the overall level of employment in the economy. One common approach to regulating overtime is to require employers to pay workers at a higher hourly rate for overtime work. Companies may choose to pay workers higher overtime pay even if not obliged to do so by law, particularly if they believe that they face a backward bending supply curve of labour. Overtime pay rates can cause workers to work longer hours than they would at a flat hourly rate. Overtime laws, attitudes toward overtime and hours of work vary greatly from country to country and between different economic sectors.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

Semyon Varlamov stopped 26 shots. Its an unfortunate play there at the end, but it happens, Mathew Barzals said. Now its a winner-take-all Game 7. Game 7 is Saturday, with the winner advancing to face Tampa Bay in the conference finals Philadelphia had a chance on a flurry in front of The Islanders net early in the second overtime, but Semyon Varlamov stopped the puck and Pelech dove at the loose puck to keep it out with his stick and glove. After Pelech lost the puck on a shot attempt when his stick broke, The Flyers pushed it up the ice and Provorov got a pass from Kevin Hayes and beat Semyon Varlamov. I saw their defenseman broke his stick, Haysie was carrying the puck in and I knew he was going to try to make a play, Provorov said. He threw the puck up front, I got it and their forward was sliding into the lane so I shot it opposite side and tired to go top corner and got it there. Carter Hart had 38 saves in regulation.
