Q: Is my employer required to pay overtime?
A: If the company is required to comply with Federal wage and hour laws (found in the Fair Labor Standards Act), time and one half should be paid to non-exempt employees for all hours worked over 40 in the work week. The U.S. Department of Labor regulates overtime.
