What is Overtime Pay?

We get a lot of questions from our clients about what overtime pay is and how it’s calculated. If you are an employee and you are covered under the “Fair Labor Standards Act” and you work more than 40 hours, you are entitled to compensation at a rate of 1 and a half times your regular rate. Now, there are a lot of exclusions and exemptions to the act, and not every employee is covered. For more detailed analysis, you should contact an employment lawyer at LaBar Adams to discuss your factual scenario and to determine whether or not your job title is covered.
