Federal Law protects certain employees’ rights to receive overtime pay when they put in more than 40 hours per week. The law also protects employees from working hours where they are not compensated.
This can include requiring employees to work while on unpaid breaks and arriving early to work for suiting up or opening the store. The penalties against employers can be substantial and there are protections against retaliation for employees that stand up for their rights.
