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.

Examples of overtime in a Sentence
Anton Khudobin had 38 saves, including 16 in the third after giving up two goals earlier in the period. Vegas goalieRobin Lehner stopped 20 shotsoverall while his record postseason shutout streak ended. Dallas was outshot 18-4 in the third period, but had the final chance in regulation with a 3-on-1 break. Stars captain Jamie Benns wrister briefly shook up Lehner, who was struck by the puck that went over the pad and hit him near his left knee as time expired. I thought in the third we responded again, had a bunch of chances to potentially win the game in the last five minutes, Vegas coach Pete DeBoer said. It was one of those nights. They were opportunistic and thats what they are. Pucks right on the wrong guys stick in the wrong spots tonight for us. Lehner was back in net for overtime, and said afterward that he was fine. As for the game-ending goal, he said, It happened pretty quick. ... Tough to judge right now. Vegas tied the game at 2 with 7:14 left in regulation on Alex Tuchs goal that was challenged by the Stars, who felt there was interference against Anton Khudobin. The goalie was in front of the right post with Mark Stone against him when Alex Tuchs shot went over Alex Tuchs left shoulder and into the net. Nothing I can say about it, I think I was out of the crease. That was it.
But in order for people to trust the internet overall and overtime, there needs to be the right regulation put in place, and I think the best way for that to get put in place is by governments like this one that are being thoughtful and diligent about how to do this.
Avarice is reprehensible acquisitiveness, excessive and insatiable desire to acquire or possess more wealth, riches or material gain than one needs or deserves. In other words, avarice is the highest level of greed or greediness. Now listen up, wealth or success is good and worthwhile too. But, you should not quest for it desperately, fraudulently or dubiously. Besides that, genuine wealth or success is meant to be acquired or achieved overtime and not at all overnight. -Emeasoba George
I always thought I was the head coach, but I learned God is the head coach. He makes up the game plan. He decides when you get to play overtime. And when he says game over, it's over.
Its unbelievable, man. I cant put it into words, the defense played the way they did to force it to overtime. The defense gets a pick and Greg makes a 57-yarder to win it. That was good from about 70. Unbelievable.
