Depending on your job, your employer cannot make you work overtime and not pay you for it. This website helps you determine whether you are entitled to overtime under the law.
There are two steps we will use to determine whether you are entitled to overtime:
1. We will determine whether the law requires that you be paid overtime. To be exempt means you do not get overtime and to be non-exempt means that you do get overtime. An analysis of your job duties or description needs to be conducted to determine if you are entitled to overtime. Often times employees who are owed overtime are simply not paid the overtime they are owed, like those that work in retail store, insurance company, law firms or restaurant, as examples.
2. Then, once we know that you are non-exempt and therefore entitled to overtime, a determination needs to be made as to how much overtime you are due.
If you believe that you are not getting overtime wages when you should use our detailed Overtime Compensation Question form to send us a detailed question about your overtime situation.
