The overtime laws for electricians under the FLSA is that employers must pay its electricians overtime, unless otherwise exempt.Overtime pay laws for electricians can be complicated, but the determination of whether you are exempt under the law is not based upon your title, but based upon several other factors. These factors include your actual job duties and responsibilities as a electrician, as well as your salary or payment in that position of work.
According to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), exemptions do not apply to electricians who perform plumbing work with their hands, physical skill and energy. This entitles the electrician to federally mandated minimum and overtime wages requirements. Some states may have their own overtime pay laws that may be slightly different from the FLSA with respect to overtime pay for electricians.
