By law, the extra hours that you work are payable to you by your employer, regardless of any arguments otherwise. I Want My OT is a resource that will help you learn your rights and help you determine if money is owed to you by a current or former employer.
According to the Fair Labor Standards Act, employees who work in excess of 40 hours in a workweek should receive at least one and one-half times their regular rates of pay. Although the FLSA does not require overtime pay for work on Saturdays, Sundays, holidays, or regular days of rest, employees may receive increased compensation at these times if it is agreed upon by the employer and employee.
Beyond overtime owed, it's also possible that your work duties have become greater than those in your job description. If upon reviewing your job description, you find that your title has been misclassified, you may be eligible for back pay based on the responsibilities you've undertaken.
The Workers Advocacy Group Enterprise (WAGE) will make you aware of the various federal and state laws that protect your rights without interference by your employer. Find out if you're due additional funds from a current or previous employer through the link below.
