Most bank tellers are protected by the Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA) and entitled to overtime wages at time-and-a-half for working more than 40 hours in a week. Banks frequently require tellers to work more than 40 hours per week but do not pay overtime wages. Tellers must often work before the start of the shift and stay after the bank closes to finish paperwork, count cash drawers, and reconcile deposits and withdraws.
Tellers are usually paid an hourly wage but some banks pay a fixed salary even if the employee works more than 40 hours in a work week. If a teller works more than 40 hours a week and is not paid overtime, this is a violation of federal laws.
A bank that refuses to pay overtime or just fails to give overtime pay when required can give rise to bank teller overtime pay lawsuit. In calculating the number of hours worked, the employer must consider all required work performed in all facilities and departments, both before and after a shift, including staff meetings and required paid training. Some states have also enacted overtime laws that regulate the number of hours an employee can work within 24 hours before receiving overtime.
