What is time off in lieu (TOIL) of overtime?

Time off in lieu (TOIL) of overtime is where you agree with your employee that you'll reward them for their overtime by giving them paid time off work.

Overtime and paid time off, one then the other. Confirm the agreement in writing if you agree with one of your employees that you'll pay their overtime with TOIL.

Make a copy of the agreement for your employee, and store another copy in their personnel file.

Some people will know time off in lieu of overtime as "banked" time. The concept here isn't too tricky, either—the member of staff working overtime agrees to "bank" overtime hours that they can then take off at a later date.
