Employment Law -- Employee
What Is The Law Regarding Overtime?
Overtime is to be paid at one and onehalf times the regular rate of pay for hours worked in excess of 40 in a work week. Overtime need only be computed for actual hours worked. Vacation days, paid holidays, or sick days (time not worked) do not need to be included in an overtime computation. Nonexempt employees in the private sector cannot be granted compensatory time in lieu of monetary overtime compensation.
