February 2018 Archives

Should you get overtime pay or comp time?

If your employer regularly offers you comp time instead of overtime pay when you put in long hours at your Missouri workplace, you may be losing out on money that should be on your paycheck. According to, except in the case of government employers, companies that provide paid time off work instead of an hourly wage one-and-a-half times your normal rate may be breaking federal employment laws. 

Young workers and overtime violations

On this blog, we have gone over various issues related to overtime violations. Regrettably, these violations can affect those who work in various fields and upend the lives of employees of all ages. However, some people may be particularly vulnerable when it comes to denied overtime and other employee rights violations. For example, a young worker may not receive overtime pay that they were entitled to because their employer thought they could get away with taking advantage of the worker.

An introduction to overtime distribution

For many members of the Missouri workforce, the option to work overtime and collect additional benefits is an opportunity to create a better financial situation. However, this advantage can become increasingly frustrating when employers fail to properly distribute overtime pay or neglect to recognize a worker's extra contributions altogether. When employees are aware of how overtime pay is determined, they may be better able to recognize when they are being treated unfairly. 

Can an employee waive overtime pay?

Whether you are an employee or own a company, you may have numerous questions related to employment law. After all, there are many facets of this legal area, employees have many rights, and the laws vary from one state to the next. For example, some wonder if employees have the ability to waive overtime pay. When it comes to overtime, some people may not realize the protections that are in place, which can be disastrous for employers and employees alike. While an employee may miss out on income that they depend on and were supposed to receive, an employer may face penalties for violating the law.
