If you are a  “Nonexempt” employee and worked over 40 hours in a workweek, you are entitled to overtime pay. That’s the law. Miami overtime pay is  at time-and-a-half of your regular rate of pay.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) is the federal law governing the payment of  overtime payments. The FLSA requires your employer to pay you overtime compensation for all “hours worked” in excess of 40 hours in a workweek, unless you are  “Exempt” from the law. The law also states that you can recover double damages and attorneys fees if you sue your employer  under the FLSA to recover unpaid overtime or wages.

What Is The FLSA Law?

The FLSA is a Federal law  that requires employers to pay employees time and a half for all hours worked over 40 hours per week, unless you fall within an exemption. If your employer has violated this law, the employer may be required to pay you your past unpaid overtime, interest, an additional amount equal to the unpaid overtime, plus costs and attorney fees.

FLSA Overtime Law

Covered nonexempt employees must receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 per workweek (any fixed and regularly recurring period of 168 hours — seven consecutive 24-hour periods) at a rate not less than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay. There is no limit on the number of hours employees 16 years or older may work in any workweek. The FLSA does not require overtime pay for work on weekends, holidays, or regular days of rest, unless overtime is worked on such days.
Hours worked, under FSLA law,  ordinarily include all the time during which an employee is required to be on the employer’s premises, on duty, or at a prescribed workplace.
