What are the Laws for Property Management Worker Overtime Pay?

Project management workers are considered “covered” under the Fair Labor Standard Overtime Laws (FLSA). This means that property management workers are entitled to overtime pay for every hour worked in excess of 40 hours in a single work week.

Some states also have specific laws that supplement or contradict the FLSA.

If you believe your employer has violated the FLSA by denying your overtime pay, your best option is to contact an experienced attorney who can advice you of your rights under the FLSA and state laws.

Unfortunately, many companies illegally deny its employees their overtime pay, and a project management worker may not be receiving the overtime wages they deserve.To recover lost wages, it is best to consult an experienced attorney on the details of your case.
