What Qualifies As Overtime

What Qualifies As Overtime

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) states that an employee must receive compensation for his employment in excess of 40 hours at a rate not less than one and one-half times the regular rate at which he is employed. It is that simple. If you are a non-exempt employee and work more than 40 hours in one week, you may be entitled to overtime wages. However, not everything qualifies as work.

Compensatory Time

Overtime worked does not equal compensation time gained. If you work more than 40 hours in one week and your employer offers you an equal or greater amount of time off in compensation, you should immediately contact our offices.

Compensatory time off for overtime hours worked is not allowed under the Fair Labor Standards Act, and you may be entitled to the overtime wages that your employer is trying not to give you.
