What are the Laws for Architectural Drafter Overtime Pay?

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, Architectural Drafters are often entitled to overtime pay for all hours worked over 40 in one week. If an employer denies an Architectural Drafter overtime wages, it could give rise to an overtime pay lawsuit.

There are strict time limitations for filing a claim so it is important that you discuss your case in a timely manner. If you wait too long, you may lose your ability to recover some or all of your back pay. An experienced Architectural Drafter overtime pay attorney can determine whether you are entitled to overtime wages based upon your job description, job duties, rate of pay, and number of hours worked.

Some states have their own overtime pay laws that may be slightly different from the FLSA with respect to overtime pay for Architectural Drafters. There are strict time deadlines for filing lawsuits so it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately.
