What is Overtime Pay?

The federal government has laws in place which discourage employers from taking advantage of employees by mandating that employees working additional hours must be duly compensated. Almost always, overtime wages are 1.5 times standard wages. For example, if you are paid $10 an hour regularly, you should be paid $15 an hour for overtime.

Too often, employers try to take unfair advantage of their workers by refusing to pay overtime or by forcing them to work additional hours without additional compensation. If you believe you and your coworkers have been taken advantage of in this manner, Feazell & Tighe, LLP, would like to hear from you.
