Overtime - By the Day or the Week

Navigation:  Home > Employment Law> Overtime Pay


An employer need only pay for overtime accrued over a given week. Thus, if you work 42 hours a week, you are entitled to two hours of overtime compensation. However, overtime compensation is not given by the day, i.e., if you work 10 hours one day, but only work 40 hours over the course of the week, you are not entitled to overtime pay. Once again, however, some specific states do offer stricter laws California, for example, requires overtime for employees who work more than eight hours on a given day.
