I thought by law all hourly employees had to be payed overtime after 40 hours?
Depends on how they do the schedule. I had a job that did a 4 day 48 hour week, then a 3 day 36 hour week, and there was zero OT because it was technically an 80 hour pay cycle. Now if you remained 15 mi utes extra, you got OT, but that never happened.
That's basically how our schedule works. Hourly folks get paid bi weekly on an 80 hour pay period. Anything over 40 hours in a week is technically OT but has to be pre-approved and tied to something specific (like a project). Consistently going over 40 h without approval is likely to trigger grief from management. it's not uncommon in our department for folks to realize at COB Thursday they are at 36 hours hence they do a half-day Friday.
