Your boss asked you to work more than 40 hours in a week, but when you got your paycheck the amount you were paid did not include payment for those hours, or worse, failed to include payment at a rate of one and one-half times your normal rate of pay. You are saying to yourself, “I’m not being paid properly for working overtime, so what should I do?”
If this has happened to you, you’re not alone.
Whether by accident or design, many employers don’t pay workers overtime because it saves money. However, federal labor laws require employers to pay their “nonexempt” employees overtime wages for any hours in excess of 40 hours per week.
