Workers are protected in circumstances of unpaid overtime

Workers who do not receive the overtime pay they have earned can struggle to support themselves and their families. It is important they are familiar with their rights and how to enforce them. Workers who work overtime have a reasonable and understandable expectation that they will be compensated for their efforts and hard work.

When overtime work goes unpaid or underpaid, it can be problematic for workers. It is important workers are fairly compensated for the work they put in. Workers who work more than 40 hours per week and do not receive overtime pay may have the right to receive it. It is important for employees to be familiar with when they qualify for overtime pay and that they do not simply rely on their employer to tell them if they qualify or not for overtime pay because the employer may not be correct. Workers in movie theaters, computer programmers and marketing and business professionals, among others, are workers that may all qualify for overtime pay.

It is also important to ensure that employees are properly classified and receive the compensation they are entitled to receive, including unpaid overtime. It is illegal for employers not to compensate their employees for overtime hours worked if the employee qualifies for overtime pay. Employers are also prohibited from underpaying and cannot retaliate against a worker for pursuing their rights to overtime pay.

For the protection of the employee's rights, it is essential for them to understand how to document overtime hours worked if it is necessary, which may be established through witness or co-worker statements, among other methods. In general, it is critical for workers to understand their overtime rights and how to enforce them when necessary.
