For many job positions, U.S. companies are still required to pay overtime wages to employees who work from home or out of the office.  Telecommuters are often required to work more than 40 hours in a single workweek.   Many times, an employee is required to “stand by” for assignments, must make phone calls or send e-mails after the official work day is over, or is required to travel to locations other than the main office or principal place of business.  In many of these circumstances, the company must pay the higher rate of overtime pay which is one and half the determined hourly rate.  This also applies to many employees who are paid a salary instead of an hourly wage.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage & Hour Division, covered nonexempt employees are entitled to be paid at least the federal minimum wage as well as overtime at one-half their regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek. Covered employees must be paid for all hours worked in a workweek.
