According to a federal law known as the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), non-exempt employees are entitled to overtime pay for hours worked over 40 in a single workweek. However, some states have their own regulations regarding minimum wage, overtime pay, employer record keeping, meal and rest breaks, and other labor issues. IQ Overtime’s Directory of State Overtime Laws includes information on wage and hour laws in all 50 states. A frequently asked questions section is also included on each state’s overtime law page in order to address some of the common concerns that workers have regarding overtime pay.
Employees who work over 40 hours per week may be entitled to overtime pay even if their employers tells them that they are not eligible to receive it. Some employers intentionally misclassify their employees in order to avoid paying them time and a half for the overtime hours they work. Other ways that employers may violate the FLSA include forcing employees to work off the clock, offering comp time instead of overtime pay, and paying employees at their regular rate for overtime hours.
Workers who believe that their employers have denied them the overtime pay they deserve may be entitled to participate in an overtime lawsuit and recover unpaid wages and other damages.
