Lawyer for 40+ Years
I also handle claims for failure to pay time-and-a-half for overtime pay for non-managerial employees. The federal Fair Labor Standards Act requires time-and-a-half pay for all hours over 40 per week for these employees.
If you do work before you clock in or clock out – such as preparing equipment for work or putting it away after work, or putting on or taking off specialized safety gear – your employer owes you wages for that work. Another example: Your employer asks you to help out “just for ten minutes” after you’ve clocked out, and this happens from time to time. The employer is violating the federal wage laws and owes you money.
An example: An employer pays you a flat $100 for ten hours of work a day, and you work 5 days a week. The employer owes you overtime because you’re working more than 40 hours a week
