If you have been getting “comp time” for working overtime hours in a work week, your employer may be violating the FLSA. A typical example is someone who works 55 hours in a workweek, and is told by their employer that they will give you 15 hours off then next week to “make up” for the extra hours worked. This is improper under the FLSA. If you are non-exempt, you are entitled to be paid overtime for any hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week. To calculate your overtime, please view Calculating Minimum Wage & Overtime. To determine whether you are exempt from overtime, please view Are you exempt or  non-exempt? .
