Adjust font size:

The number of complaints over under-payment for overtime is rising, according to the Shanghai Labor and Social Security Bureau in its quarterly report released yesterday.

The bureau's labor security supervision body received 8,080 complaints during the first quarter, of which 6,031 have been dealt with.

Of those, 64.2 percent concerned arrears of payments and employers failing to pay social insurance.

The number of cases related to wage delays and employers paying lower than the minimum wage dropped, according to the bureau, which did not provide the detailed number of such cases.

But the number of complaints related to overtime payments increased by 32.6 percent during the first quarter, compared to the same period last year.

Officials from the bureau warned that employees should be paid double time if they work at weekends.
