What Is an Overtime & Wage Hour Case?
Every official employee should be hired on following the regulations of some sort of employment contract, in which it will entail how much compensation that employee earns for their services and work. Any deviation from this established hourly rate or salary amount can be considered an employment law violation and trigger a wage hour case.
In New York, any non-exempt employee has the right to earn overtime (OT) if they work for more than 40 hours in any given workweek. When working overtime, an employee is entitled to at least 150% of their regular pay for each hour worked.
Exempt employees that likely do not earn overtime include:
- Any employee who can earn commissions through sales
- Workers who regularly use computers in the workplace and earn $27.63 an hour or more
- Many professional drivers, freight loaders, and some mechanics
- Agricultural workers and farmers
- Business executives and administrators
- Professional contractors
Company heads, members of management, and other supervisors should review employee records at least once a year to ensure non-exempt employees are being paid overtime when appropriate.
As an employee in the state of New York, you are protected by a number of various laws, rules, and regulations. The most fundamental right you have as a working citizen is to receive fair wages and hours based on the work you do.
