OVERTIME, could you be owed overtime? Overtime rules are very complicated. It is best to speak to one of our San Bernardino labor lawyers about overtime rules.
Legal terms that you will hear when discussing overtime rules include exempt, non-exempt, time and a half, and double pay.
Just because an employee is paid by the hour does not mean they are entitled to overtime. Likewise, just because an employee is paid a salary opposed to hourly does not mean they are not entitled to overtime. Just because you do the grunt work of the operation without exercising independent discretion does not mean you are entitled to overtime if you work in a job that is part of an industry that has an overtime exemption. There are so many exceptions and various laws controlling the situation, you must speak to an experienced San Bernardino County wage and hour lawyer.
Common issues in overtime rules include whether you regularly supervise two or more people 51% of the time you work. The employers reasonable expectation of what your job is also matters in determining whether you are entitled to overtime. Job titles are not dispositive in determining whether you are entitled to overtime. Issues also come up if your employer does not know you are working overtime, or specifically instructed that you do not work overtime.
In order to claim overtime you do not have to have records of the hours you worked overtime. Once a case is filed, we will ask for the employment records that show when you worked overtime. If time records showing when you worked overtime were not kept by the employer, you are entitled to estimate your hours and great deference will be given to your estimates.
