John, one approach I've seen is to state in the contract what your 'regular hourly' rate is, what your 'over-40' rate is, and what your 'weekend' rate is.

i.e. 40/60/80 or 60/90/120

It'll might down on the weekend work. You'reliucky the client recognizes the need for overtime.


I am a freelance tech writer who has been asked to contract for a gig that will involve over 40 hours of work a week. I've never arranged overtime compensation as a contractor.

I'd be interested in hearing from those contractors who have negotiated hourly rates for overtime. Is it as simple as time and a half? Thanks.
