Activision Recommends Bizarre Closure

Activision is recommending the closure of Bizarre Creations, the developer of James Bond 007: Blood Stone as well as several racing games, reports Develop. This comes just a couple of months after it was announced that Activision was seeking a buyer for the studio. Activision "explored a lot of leads – pretty much anyone you can imagine in the industry," says Activision Worldwide Studios CEO Coddy Johnson. "But unfortunately, so far we’ve not been able to find any interested parties. So we’ve made as a last resort, a recommendation to the team for closure."

I'm in UK, we... Kind of get overtime or time off in leu (TOIL).

It depends though, on industry, seniority, pay, sector, small biz vs corporate...

In general though people either get OT/TOIL or get pay that pretty much makes up for "unpaid" OT. People who don't get paid for the OT one way or the other are probably career-building, trying to catch up for being poor (or overly fussy with paperwork etc) at their job or yes, simply being done over by their employers.

It's often not obvious which of the above you fall into though, most people don't really have any objective info for what would be fair pay for them and people rationalise and warp reality to make sure they fit into the latter category regardless of what the facts say.
