Overtime = You are paid to work 40 hours per week. Your company asks you to work more than 40 hours during a certain week or weeks. Usually you'll be paid 150% the usual pay for that time. Some companies pay 200% when a worker has to work on a holiday. So, if you normally earn $10 per hour, you can expect to be paid at least $15 per hour when you work overtime.
Over time = During a period of time.
