How Do I Know If I Qualify For Receiving Overtime Pay?
You can be paid overtime if you fit any of these criteria:
- Your employer made you work overtime.
- You worked more than 8 hours in a day, or more than 40 hours in a workweek.
How Employers Try To Get Around “Annoying” Overtime Rules
In California, employers have many ways to avoid paying you overtime.
Or, they’ll pay you less than you deserve. Here are some of the ways they do that:
- They’ll make you work off the clock (so it isn’t tracked)
- They’ll say you are a salaried employee, even if you aren’t. (Note that being on salary doesn’t prevent you from receiving overtime pay)
- They’ll say your hourly wage is lower than it is for the overtime calculation (overtime is normally 150% of your normal pay)
You Might Be Owed More Than You Think.
Perhaps you just noticed recently that you weren’t being paid overtime, or not enough. If you’ve been employed for a while, it can add up.
Just as a quick example…let’s say you worked overtime 5 hours a week, and you earn $30 an hour…and you’ve been working there for 2 years. Your overtime pay would be $45. You may not care to do all the math, but you will be glad you did.
Using the example above, what you would be owed for overtime: $45 * 260 hours = $11,700! That’s savings towards college or home, or a new car – or paying off debt.
Oh…and one more thing. That number above?
Because, under the Fair Labor Standards Act, if an employer violates overtime laws, damages DOUBLE.
You Don’t Pay Unless We Get You A Payment.
There’s so much stress you have to deal with in a hostile work environment or while you’re unemployed. Then paying a lawyer on top of all that can be too much too soon.
You’ll be relieved to know that we work on something called contingency. This means that we get paid a part of the settlement you receive. So, you aren’t on the hook for anything until we win your case. It’s in our best interest to get you the best deal possible.
