The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires employers to pay overtime to employees who work over 40 hours per work week. The act sets the minimum amount of overtime pay at one and one-half times the regular pay rate. Employers are prohibited from disregarding overtime hours, even if an employee has agreed to work those hours for a lower pay rate.
Recent changes to the act specify that “blue-collar” workers, police officers, fire fighters, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, and licensed practical nurses are entitled to overtime protection.
