An employer must pay a nonexempt employee 1 ½ times an employee’s regular rate of pay when he/she works more than 40 hours per week. Some states require overtime to be paid if an employee works in excess of 8 hours in a day. If this has occurred, an employee may be entitled to damages. There are some exceptions that may apply.
