| worked more than 40 hours a week? |
Under federal and state law, employees who work more than forty hours in a week are generally entitled to overtime pay for the hours over forty at a rate of one and a half times their regular hourly rate.
For example, if an employee is paid twenty dollars an hour and works fifty hours in a week, for that week, the employee is entitled to base wages of 40 hrs x $20 or $800, plus overtime wages of 10 hrs x $30 or $300, for a total weekly wage of $1100. If the employer fails to pay you the required overtime wages, call us at 718-740-1000 for a free consultation.
| worked more than 10 hours a day? |
Under New York law a minimum wage employee who works a spread-of-hours of more than ten hours in a day or works a split-shift is entitled to an extra hour of pay for each such day.
For example, if the applicable minimum wage is $7.25/hr and an employee works 55 hours in a week consisting of five 11-hour days, that employee would be entitled to base pay of 40 hrs x $7.25 or $290, plus overtime pay of 15 hrs x $10.875 or $163.125, plus spread-of-hours pay of $7.25 x 5 days or $36.25, for a total weekly wage of $489.375 in this example. If the employer fails to pay you the required spread-of-hours wages, call us at 718-740-1000 for a free consultation.
