Understanding Overtime Rules and How They Protect Your Rights
Overtime rules have been violated for as long as they have existed, but in this troubling economy, employers are even more likely to try and bend the rules. Employees deserve to be properly financially compensated for every hour they work. The rights associated with overtime labor are protected by The Fair Labor Standards Act; this act establishes standards for minimum wage, recordkeeping, overtime pay, and child labor. There are over 130 million people that are affected by overtime rules, including part time and full time workers.
