Your Right To Overtime Pay According To The Indiana Department of Labor
Most Indiana employers and employees are covered by the minimum wage and overtime provisions of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA); however those not covered under federal law may still be covered by the Indiana Minimum Wage Law.
Both the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Indiana Minimum Wage Law generally require employers to pay employees 1½ times their regular rate of pay (“overtime compensation”) when employees work more that forty (40) hours during a work week. However, there are many exceptions to the overtime pay requirements of both federal and state law. Most of the exceptions to Indiana state law can be found here . Overtime claims should be made directly to the federal U.S. Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division at the nearest regional office, or at the Indianapolis District Office.
