No, an employee is not required to obtain permission or authorization from the employer to receive overtime pay. If the employer is aware that an employee is working overtime or reasonably should have known about the overtime work, then the worker is entitled to be paid for the overtime. This is true even if your employer did not pre-approve the overtime hours or overtime pay.
