Don't let your overtime pay fall by the wayside

In our previous blog post, we discussed the basic overtime laws that govern hourly positions in the United States. Any employee who is working an hourly position should know how the overtime laws apply to them. We know that pressuring employers for pay isn't something that most employees want to do, but in some cases, it is necessary.

As we discussed last week, employers can't legally ask employees to give up their right to overtime pay. That doesn't mean that employers will just hand overtime pay to employees who work more than 40 hours per workweek. Instead, some employees have to fight for the pay that is due to them.

We know that employees count on receiving their full paycheck when payday comes. Discrepancies from missing overtime payments can sometimes mean having to put off paying a bill. In some cases, missing overtime can have dire consequences for employees.

It is important for employees to keep track of when they work. That is the information can show that they have worked overtime hours. Checking a paycheck against the hours you worked is a good starting point to ensure that you are getting appropriate pay.

If you notice a discrepancy on your paycheck, you should take action immediately. When the discrepancy isn't corrected, we can help you learn your options and help you take the steps so you can get the pay that you worked hard to receive. Don't let the pay that you worked for fall by the wayside. Instead, stand up for your right to receive your pay.
