Your rights at work
Does my employer have to pay me overtime?
In most jobs, when you work more than 44 hours in a week, the hours above 44 are overtime hours. You earn 1½ times your hourly pay for each hour of overtime that you work. For example, if your hourly wage is $16.00, your overtime rate would be $24.00 an hour.
The rules about overtime pay may not apply to you if you agreed in writing to different rules. If you are protected by a union, the union can make an agreement on your behalf.
