As a general matter, the Fair Labor Standards Act requires employers to pay their employees for overtime work at a rate of one and one-half times the employees' regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 40 in a workweek. The FLSA, however, provides a limited exception to this rule for state and local governmental agencies in that public employers may compensate employees who work overtime hours with extra paid time off instead of overtime pay in certain circumstances. Contact our overtime attorneys today to find out if your employer made a mistake with respect to calculating overtime pay for a public employee under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
