Employment

Overtime

Under the FLSA, employees who work more than 40 hours a week are entitled to additional pay. Overtime pay must be at least time and a half, meaning employees are paid 1.5 times as much as working during regular hours. Unfortunately, many employers violate the FLSA and do not properly pay overtime hours. When this occurs, employees may feel like they have little recourse, but an experienced employment attorney can help you understand your legal rights and options.

Overtime Rules Under the FLSA

Overtime rules under the FLSA can be complicated. The threshold for receiving overtime pay is 40 hours in a workweek, however, workweeks aren’t just Monday through Friday. A workweek is defined as a fixed and regularly recurring period of 168 hours (seven days) that can start and end on any day and hour of the week. Additionally, there is no limit on the number of overtime hours an employee can work and be paid for.

Companies Denying Overtime

Because overtime hours are paid out at 1.5 times an employee’s regular wages, many companies deny employees overtime pay to save money on their bottom line. When a company violates the FLSA, employees can hold them responsible by filing a lawsuit to recover wages.

Some of the current overtime violation cases Whitfield, Bryson & Mason LLP are pursuing include:

Bob Evans

Plaintiffs have accused the restaurant chain Bob Evans of failing to pay overtime to assistant managers.

Five Guys Burgers

Assistant managers at Five Guys Burgers believe the company has not paid them properly for overtime hours worked while receiving training.

Oil and Gas Workers

Numerous claims have been filed on behalf of fracking operators who have not been properly paid overtime.
