Change Request Overtime Pay

Do you get paid for overtime, or compensated for non-standard work hours, when performing change requests during off-peak usage times?

I have been doing change requests and system patches and upgrades since Windows 3.1 and Netware 3.0 were common operating systems. While most previous employers have compensated me for this time, some of them just considered it part of the "other duties as assigned" clause and I went about my business working at 3am.
