Overtime Disputes For Hourly And Salaried Workers
Under the overtime provision of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Ohio Fair Labor Standards Act, most hourly (nonexempt) employees are entitled to a pay rate of one and a half times their rate of pay for every hour they work over 40 hours. If you are an hourly worker and you have been denied overtime pay, our lawyers are here to help you fight for what you deserve.
Most people think that if they are salaried (exempt), they are not entitled to overtime. In many situations, however, this is not the case. The question is: Are salaried according to your employer’s definition or the definition set forth by the FLSA? You may be called a manager in title, but if a significant portion of your workday is spent doing menial tasks, you may, in fact, be misclassified and eligible to receive overtime pay.
