Yes, you may be entitled to overtime pay for community service work required by the company you work for. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) allows volunteer hours provided the work performed by community service worker does not displace or replace work that is regularly subject to being for by an employer. The key word is whether the activity is part of being “engaged in commerce.”
If you believe you have been denied overtime pay for community service work you should speak with one of our experienced unpaid overtime lawsuit attorneys to determine your rights. We will evaluate your job description, job duties, rate of pay, and number of hours worked to see if you are entitled to such benefits.
