When must my employer pay me overtime wages?
By mandate of the United States Department of Labor, employers must pay non-exempt employees at least one and a half times their normal rate of pay after they have worked more than 40 hours during the workweek. As such, any qualifying employee who works beyond 40 hours in any given workweek must be paid overtime wages. If your employer is attempting to deny you overtime pay, legal representation may be necessary in order for you to be fairly compensated. The employment lawyers at The Melton Law Firm are prepared to fight for fair overtime compensation from any company that attempts to deny qualifying employees their overtime pay.
