Employees who work more than 40 hours in a week are entitled to overtime pay, which is one-and-one-half times the regular rate of pay, if the employees are not exempt from pay for overtime. Overtime laws set out when overtime kicks in and how much employees must be paid for working overtime. Employers who violate overtime laws can face lawsuits alleging they violated laws on overtime. Contact West Seattle Injury Attorney if you have worked overtime and not received time and half for your overtime hours.
