Did you know that most employers are required to pay overtime? There is a federal law that mandates overtime pay for most employees who work more than 40 hours per week. Employer subject to the federal law have to pay time and a half when an hourly employee works more than 40 hours per week. If the employer does not pay for overtime worked, the employee is entitled to the unpaid overtime, damages, and the legal fees.
There are a few employees who may not need to be paid overtime. These jobs include managers and supervisors, executives, decision makers, and professional employees. However, people in these categories still have to be paid at least $455 per week. For example, if a manager is only being paid $400 per week, the manager is still entitled to overtime pay.
