What are the Laws for Tax Collector Overtime Pay?

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

Are Tax Collectors Entitled to Overtime Pay?

Because Tax Collectors perform essential duties in resolving delinquent taxpayer accounts, they often 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 Tax Collector can result in a lawsuit for overtime pay.
