Orlando Overtime Pay Lawyer: Professional Overtime Pay Legal Services in Orlando and Central Florida
Overtime Pay is governed by the Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA). Included in the FLSA are the conditions, stipulations, exemptions, and compliance in overtime and wage and hour issues.
In most cases, an employee is entitled to receive overtime pay in the form of time and a half (1.5 times the hourly rate), based on the employees hourly rate of pay for every hour worked over 40 hours per week.
There are overtime exemptions which based upon occupations, and other specific conditions. However, many of these overtime exemptions require the employer to adhere to very strict guidelines in order to maintain the overtime pay exemption status of each employee.
Overtime laws can be very complicated and confusing to both the worker and the employer. While some employers intentionally deny employees overtime pay, there are also many employers who, due to the complexity of overtime laws, mistakenly do not pay employees entitled overtime pay. Regardless if the act of denying an employee overtime pay is intentional or unintentional, when the employee is lawfully entitled to receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 hours per week, the employee must be paid overtime pay for hours worked over 40 hours per week.

One of the most common misconceptions about overtime pay is that if a worker is paid a salary, as opposed to an hourly wage, the employee is not entitled to receive overtime pay. The reality is that a salary, for the most part, is nothing more than a guaranteed level of income. A salary is still based upon 40 hours a week, and therefore has an hourly value. Most salaried employees are entitled to receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 hours per week (or more than 8.0 hour per day).
