In a worker’s life, there is always some amount of overtime that you will have to do. Sometimes the employer will force you to do the work and you don’t want to do. Also, there are certain cases where the employee is not paid for the overtime for the number of hours that he is working for. In any of such cases, you can contact Employment Attorney Ravi Sattiraju who will help you out and give the solution for all your problems.
Before going to an attorney, there are still some of the doubts and the questions that many of the people are facing. Some of which are
- If you a salaried employee and you are doing a work of an exempt worker, should you get paid?
- Is there a limit on how many hours of overtime is done?
- What about the payment of the overtime? Is it compulsory to get paid for extra hours?
All of these questions have been answered in the below-given sections. Make sure you check out everything to know exactly when you can go for a lawyer and when everything going on is legal.
A salaried employee is a person who will earn at least $455 per week. Unlike the non-salaried person who will be paid on an hourly basis or based on the project or the task they complete. A person is paid a salary assuming he will work for 40 hours in a week for the majority of the year. If he is paid and does the overtime work of the exempt worker, he/she is not entitled to receive any of the other extra pay. Whereas on the other hand, the employee must be paid extra.
The Exempt works responsibilities will include all the work that will require an advanced degree or any of the supervisory work. Also, the work which requires the employee to perform all the business decisions can be included in the work duties.
Employee overtime duration
If you are still thinking the employer is forcing you to do too much extra work. There isn’t any rule where the employer will have to limit the number of hours an employee can work. For instance, an employee can be asked to work for any number of overtime, there is no rule stating the limit on how much an employee has to work.
If you are fine about the overtime duration and you are thinking about the payment you will get then there is a rule of the pay. The employer has to pay for each and every hour the employee works for them in overtime. This can’t be ignored. If you are not getting paid and you do not come in the above-mentioned condition of salary employees, you can contact Employment Attorney Ravi Sattiraju, who will get you the justice that you are looking for. Discuss how many hours you have worked and also state what your current pay except for overtime is. They will guide you everywhere.
