What are the Laws for Substitute Teacher Overtime Pay?

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, Substitute Teachers are often entitled to overtime pay for all hours worked over 40 in one week. If an employer denies a Substitute Teacher 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 Substitute Teacher 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 Substitute Teachers. There are strict time deadlines for filing lawsuits so it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately.

Are Substitute Teachers Entitled to Overtime Pay?

Because Substitute Teachers fill in and perform a permanent teacher’s duties when he/she is unavailable, their schedules may require them to work far more than 40 hours in a workweek. Many of them are not paid overtime for these excess hours as required under the FLSA. The employer’s failure to pay required overtime to a Substitute Teacher can result in a lawsuit for overtime pay.
