Overtime Rates

Are you being paid the appropriate overtime rate? Many people are unaware of the exact laws and regulations regarding overtime, including if overtime pay rates are offered by their employer or if working overtime is strictly forbidden. Our attorneys will ensure that you are properly protected and compensated if you have ever worked overtime for an employer without receiving the proper pay rate or within the legally allotted hours. Contact our law offices in Irvine today for a free consultation.

Overtime Hours

Have you been asked to work off the clock? If so, you should not agree to do so. As long as you are a taxed employee working for an employer, you should be working your specified and agreed-upon hours — never anything extra without additional pay. In most cases, working more than 40 hours per week would constitute overtime and require additional pay for your labor. Be sure to cross-check your local laws with your employee handbook before signing and agreeing to it to ensure that your overtime rights are protected.
