What is Overtime Pay?
Overtime pay is the extra compensation earned when an employee works more than 40 hours in a week. Overtime is paid at the rate of time and a half. For example, if an employee works at $20 per hour for 50 hours, then the employee would be typically owed a total of $1,100. That’s because $800 (40 hours times $20 per hour) plus $300 (10 overtime hours at $30 per hour) equals $1,100.
Be sure you are checking your pay stub and that you are getting the correct overtime pay. Do not assume that your employer is calculating your overtime pay correctly. Accounting errors do happen – don’t fall prey to them!
Many professionals do not receive their overtime pay due to errors or other miscellaneous reasons. More often than not, that is not why employees aren’t getting their overtime pay. Sadly, it typically happens because the company is just not playing fair with their books and in turn their employees are the people who get caught in the crossfire with their (lack of) overtime pay.
When a company is holding overtime pay back from their employees, they are pocketing the employee’s money for themselves.
