Yes, Denny’s employees are entitled to overtime pay for work that is done “off the clock” in excess of 40 hours per week. This is regardless of whether they are classified as an independent contractor. Denny’s restaurant employees are responsible for many jobs that require an excess amount of time to complete.
The United States Department of Labor’s Wage & Hour Division explicitly states that covered, nonexempt employees are entitled to be paid at least the federal minimum wage as well as overtime pay at time and one half their regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 40 in a work week.
Our experienced Denny’s restaurant worker overtime pay lawyers can determine if you are entitled to overtime wages based upon your job description, job duties, rate of pay, and number of hours worked. You are entitled to these wages against Denny’s if you are a current employee or worked there in the past. There are strict time deadlines for filing overtime pay lawsuits so it is important that you contact an attorney right away if you believe you have been cheated out of overtime wages.
