What are the Laws for BP Motor Club Employee Overtime Pay?
Under the Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA), many BP Motor Club employees are considered non-exempt and therefore entitled to overtime pay.
If an employee is non-exempt under the FLSA, the law requires that they are paid overtime wages of one and one-half times their regular rate of pay for every hour past 40 in one week.
The FLSA has several exemptions, however, that would preclude employees from receiving overtime pay. For example, employees with “administrative” or “professional” roles may fall under these exemptions.
It is important to note that exemption is not determined solely based on job title. Rather, job description, job duties, rate of pay, and hours worked are used to determine if an employee should receive overtime pay.
On top of the FLSA, some states have their own overtime pay laws. These laws may complement or contradict the FLSA, so it is important to consult an experienced attorney who is familiar with all the applicable overtime pay laws.
Are BP Motor Club Employees Entitled to Overtime Pay?
Some BP Motor Club employees are required to work double shifts, as well as additional time before and after their scheduled shift. As a result, many BP Motor Club employees end up working more than 40 hours per week, and are therefore entitled to overtime pay.
Employees who are exempt under the FLSA are not entitled to overtime pay. Whether or not a BP Motor Club employee falls under the “administrative” or “professional” exemptions is determined based on job description, job duties, rate of pay, and the number of hours worked.
Employers often deny or unlawfully refuse to pay overtime by misclassifying the positions of the workers, claiming that they are exempt when, in reality, they are not. For example, BP Motor Club location or shift managers may be classified as exempt by the company based on their “manager” title, when, in reality, their job duties reflect a non-exempt position.
Under the FLSA, workers classified as “managers” can be overtime exempt, but must perform certain duties vital to the businesses operations including hiring and firing subordinates, creating work schedules and setting employee pay. Companies often give titles like “manager” or “supervisor” to workers who do not perform necessary duties, as a means to avoid paying overtime and keep payroll down.
BP Motor Club may also require their employees to report to work early but not “punch the clock” until later or strike hours off of time cards, or they may refuse to pay employees for work done before the shift starts and after they punch out for the day. These are violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and can give rise to an overtime pay lawsuit.
An experienced overtime pay attorney will be able to analyze your case in the context of the FLSA and your state’s laws to determine if you are due overtime wages from BP Motor Club.
Does BP Motor Club Have to Pay Overtime Wages to its Employees?
In many cases, BP Motor Club is required to pay overtime wages to employees that work more than 40 hours in one week. This excludes employees who are considered exempt under the FLSA.
Exemption is not cut and dry; the FLSA is a complicated law and state laws can complicate the picture even further.
If you believe that BP Motor Club owes you overtime pay, it is best to consult an attorney who has experience with the FLSA and state overtime wage laws.

Has BP Motor Club Been Involved in Overtime Pay Lawsuits?
Over the past several years, current or former employees have brought a number of lawsuits against companies like BP Motor Club in an effort to reclaim lost overtime wages. If you believe BP Motor Club is denying you overtime wages, you could have a case similar to that of a previous lawsuit. Here are a few examples of such lawsuits:
- An overtime pay lawsuit was filed by Yelp employees against the company for unpaid wages. The Yelp call center gents worked a full-time schedule and were required to use Yelp’s computer networks, programs, and applications in order to perform their jobs. However, the agents were required to perform off-the-clock work to boot-up their computers and software programs before their shifts, and to shut-down the computers after their shifts. The agents were not paid for their off-the-clock work, which amounted to 10 to 25 minutes of unpaid work per day.
- A group of former food-preppers for a Cincinnati-area dumpling restaurant recently filed an unpaid overtime lawsuit against their old boss alleging the defendant failed to pay them all their wages, including overtime and other income.
