WAGES/OVERTIME PAY

Going to work each day and performing your duties advances the interests of your company or organization, and requires your commitment and dedication. Each day you go to work, you put the needs of your employer as your priority. It is unfair when your employer does not follow through with its legal obligations to pay you for the services you have already provided.

The law regarding overtime is simple: a non-exempt employee must be paid time-and-a-half for all hours worked over eight hours in any workday and over 40 hours in a work week.

Companies that violate wage-and-hour laws, by forcing non-exempt employees to work through lunch breaks, take unpaid rest breaks, or open/close the business on unpaid time are breaking wage-and-hour the laws. Others companies have classified certain workers as managerial and therefore treat them as "exempt" from wage-and-hour laws, even when these employees are not really managers.

If you and your co-workers have been made to work off-the-clock or if you have been mistakenly classified as an exempt employee, you may be entitled to compensation for your unpaid overtime and benefits.
