What Is The Rule On Paying For Overtime?

Most workers who are paid an hourly wage must be paid overtime if they work more than 40 hours in a 7-day work week. Overtime must be at least one and one-half times the worker’s regular hourly rate.

There are exceptions to this rule. Employees categorized as “exempt” do not have to be paid overtime for hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a week.
